Can not create redirect in 2017editor.
Visual editor works for articles. And in the visual editor, you can create a redirect (menu-parameters-page settings). But when you switch to editor2017, then the settings in the menu are inactive.
Redirections are very necessary in the editor2017. For pages where the visual editor does not work (namespaces wikipedia, project ...) by default opens editor2017, when you create a new page.
