There is a pretty convenient shortcut for creating new documents and avoiding the New Document dialog box. But there is a little bit of setup along the way before you can use this shortcut. So let's do the setup. I am going to create a new document from the Welcome Screen here. You'll notice that there is a Document Preset menu up here at the top, and it's currently set to Default. The default setting is Letter, Vertical Orientation with Facing Pages turned on. I am going to go ahead and turn Facing Pages off, make it a wide aspect ratio, and let's save this with a different preset name. We'll go ahead and call it Demo.
After we click the Save Preset button, go ahead and click OK. Now, my current Document Preset has been changed to Demo and it captured all the settings down below. I am going to go ahead and click OK. Now, we are working on this document, we are doing whatever. Tomorrow, 15 minutes from now, whatever, you want to create a brand new document using the exact same settings from that preset that it's currently chosen in the Document dialog. If I did Command+N or Ctrl+N, that would open the dialog. I want to skip that. So Command+Option+N, Ctrl+Alt+N will give you a brand new document, but skip the dialog box.
