Regression Status: NOT A REGRESSION same issue exist with stable XS 5.0(build 878).
Xamarin Studio Version 5.1 (build 323)
Git revision: 3fa48ec1d1969b7b3f9de20326fb3687f612800f

I think, instead of empty window with no files, there should be message displayed, with "empty directory" info. I've already prepared a patch, but before submitting it, I'd like to know, what maintainers think about this message dialog.
It would also be nice to add message dialog when no file is selected and 'ok' button is pressed because both the 'ok' and 'cancel' buttons simply does the same thing when no file is selected .. I have submitted a patch for that.. i guess this will help..
Fixed in version 18.104.22.1684 (new-project-model)
Not yet fixed.
Fixed in version 22.214.171.1246 (roslyn)
I have checked this issue on both Mac and Windows with latest master build and observed that it is working fine. When try to add any file in empty folder I am getting message "Directory is empty, no file have been added". Here is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/CAY6taZWyOP
Hence closing this issue.
