Hi Christian, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
We have analyzed your requirement and you can achieve this by adding custom toolbar item to SfImageEditor and set ImageSource as null in ToobarItemSelected as per the below code snippet.  
Code snippet 
<Grid Background="{ThemeResource ApplicationPageBackgroundThemeBrush}"  > 
      <image:SfImageEditor x:Name="imageEditor" ImageSource="floordiagram.png"></image:SfImageEditor> 
public MainPage() 
            FooterToolbarItem toolbarItem = new FooterToolbarItem(); 
            toolbarItem.Text = "New"; 
            imageEditor.ToolbarSettings.ToolbarItemSelected += ToolbarSettings_ToolbarItemSelected; 
        private void ToolbarSettings_ToolbarItemSelected(object sender, ToolbarItemSelectedEventArgs e) 
            if (e.ToolbarItem.Text == "New") 
                imageEditor.ImageSource = null; 
We have prepared a sample based on this, please find the sample from the following location.  
Hope it helps you.

Well, this does create a new image, but it crashes when you save the new image.
"Offset and length were out of bounds for the array or count is greater than the number of elements from index to the end of the source collection."


1) Run the sample UWP_Sample-860035795
2) Click "New"
3) Draw a line on the blank canvas
4) Click "Save"

The problem is that the ImageEditor Stream is null.
