In my opinion

1) "Create" should use the same font *size and case* as the two other
options "Open" and "Template".
See https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/File:89328.jpg

2) The third option should also be an *action*. "Create" and "Open" are
actions/verbs. The third option should also start with an action/verb. My
suggestion is "Use Template" (to avoid repeating the verb create, which is
in reality what the user is doing: creating a new document from a template)

3) Repeating "New" is redundant. In fact you can not Create something that
is not New :)

4) I agree that associating the file type with the application is a good
thing: Writer Text, Calc Spreadsheet, etc

Just my 4 cents :)
