Logically, the "New Issue" menu item does not belong to the main-menu, but to the sidebar within the Issues category (New Issue, View all issues, Summary)

As this is the main feature of Redmine, it is obvious to put it in the main-menu. Additionally it would be nice to have it in the Issues category too. A lot of our users where looking for this item in the sidebar.

I suggest making a small change to "+" button. "This patch" (attachment:15880-add-link-to-new-issue.diff) adds link to /issues/new page to plus button. Users can access to the page quickly like conventional "New issue" tab, only by clicking "+" button.

The click on the "+" displays the menu, which is required for touch devices as explained by Jan. Clicking on the "+" should not link to a particular menu item IMHO.

Current implementation:

1. Move cursor to "+". Dropdown menu shows up.
2. Move cursor to "New issue" menu item.
3. Click left button of a mouse.

Yes, that's why I'm not really convinced of this new menu item. Anyway, it's merged into 3.3, with a setting to choose whether to use the new "+" (default), the old "New issue" tab or nothing.

I'm closing this issue, please submit any improvements/changes in a separate issue for 3.3.1.
