VS 2013 Ultimate

The same works correctly with a lot of other items, like text files, etc for non Xamarin projects

please see attachment

I *think* it worked ok when I was on VS 2010

Hey Andy,

What kind of templates do you think are missing?

Comment 2 Andy 2014-01-17 14:12:41 UTC

On vs2010 I had lots of them. At least a txt file, don't you think ?

If this isn't a bug, it's a bit weird anyway, since on vs2010 I had way more options.
Comment 3 Dominique Louis 2014-01-20 13:29:27 UTC
  I just checked the Add New Item Screen in VS2010 and it has exactly the same number of items as listed in your screenshot. No more, no less.
Comment 4 Andy 2014-01-20 13:39:42 UTC
In my case I could swear it had more. Anyway, shouldn't there be more items ?
