I continue to find files getting nested in places they should not be.  Look at the attached image and see how our Main.cs class is nested under a storyboard.  I have no idea why this is happening.  I have to search for classes I can't find then find them nested oddly as this.  I checked the .csproj file and I see this:

    <Compile Include="Settings\Main.cs">

I'm not sure why this happened!

I fixed about a dozen of these after reporting this.  I even found images nested in images, PDF's nested, etc.  Very unfortunate but glad I found it.

Maybe you accidentally nested the files using drag&drop?
Comment 3 Neal 2013-08-20 10:55:13 UTC
I found numerous kinds of numerous types even images nested upon images.  Regardless of drag/drop, the DependentUpon should only be for certain file types.  Why would an image be dependent upon another image?  Can you drag and drop and nest images in Visual Studio?  I don't think so.

There are lot of things you can do in XS that you can't do in VS.

Grouping images could make sense for e.g. retina variants.

okay, never mind then, thanks.
