Ability to create new files from File Explorer

If you are in file explorer and are typing a name that has no matches. It would be great if you could press return or cmd+return to create a new file with default text editor.

 

So if inside here:

I do:

And press return. Alfred would create that file at that path and open it in my editor (VSCode for me) so I can fill it with content.

 

I know I can create a file action on a folder to create a file but the above scenario would be more useful to me in terms of UX.

 

Hope this can be added.

Even nicer although not necessary would be if you could create both folders and files if multiple separator paths are provided. Like so:

Where test is a directory and myfile.csv is the file.
