Lluis, i think the solution pad is just displaying some items twice. I've seen it a few times but haven't been able to narrow down a way to reliably repro it.

I've triggered the issue by dragging a class (with nested .designer.cs) into the 'Resources' folder and then dragging it back out into the toplevel csproj.

For me it's as simple as:
let the designer generate a new class,
then move it to my ViewControllers folder, which is a root folder in my project.
I have about 4 projects in my solution.

There's no fix for this, so I'll just change this to not reproducible.
