Description victor.chelaru 2015-03-26 17:47:51 UTC
To reproduce:

1. Create a project in Xamarin Studio - I created Android but I don't think the type matters
2. Create an empty folder, like "Content"
3. Place a .png file in a folder outside of the project folder structure (not sure if this is necessary, but it's how I reproduced it)
4. Drag the .png file from Windows Explorer onto the empty folder in the Solution Pad. Notice the cursor has a "+" next to it, indicating that the file can be dropped there.

Actual results: Folder remains empty both in Xamarin Studio as well as on the disk.

Expected results: Xamarin Studio should ask you if you want to copy, move, or reference the file
