(1) You need to create a "Templates" directory in your home folder. Why it's not there by defalt, I do not know.
Type mkdir /home/andreaz/Templates
Change andreaz to whatever your real username is.
(2) Stick any blank document, spreadsheet, whatever you want in there.
Bring up gedit
Then just do a save to /home/andreaz/Templates/gedit.txt
Now Right Click the desktop > Create Document > and "gedit" will be listed.
There is a design bug in all this however ( well, I consider it a design bug ), it creates a blank saved document to the desktop - it doesn't open gedit to a blank document. If you use the example above you'll see what I mean.
