Our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed on this bug
tracker over the years. Thanks also for your understanding as we
make these adjustments and improvements for the future.
Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
1) Create a solution
2) Choose 'Add existing folder'
3) Select a directory outside the project tree
4) Choose to copy the files locally
The files and directories which are added to the solution are not put under version control
This appears to be a cosmetic issue. The git VC system does not refresh and so the incorrect icons (indicating the files are not under version control) are shown in the Solution pane. If the solution is closed and reopened the correct icons are displayed.
This is no longer an issue.
