  "Make Link" operation missing from context menu(Unity7, Xenial)

Status in Nautilus:
  Fix Released
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  In Nautilus 3.15.x create symbolic links ("make link") was removed
  from the context menu (not sure why?). The alternate method with
  middle-click/drag does not work with mouse-less device
  (laptops/netbooks) and the other alternate method, which involves
  mouse, keyboard and three fingers simultaneously,  is very
  inconvenient for normal users and has bugs.

  And It doesn't look like upstream is  keen to get back this option
  very soon. For LTS, its a major regression and Ubuntu should patch it
  until they do.
