The default path to write a new project to when adding the project to a solution folder seems to be set to the location of the first project already in the solution folder, and not its parent path.
If I right click on <Solution Folder> and add a new project, the output path for the new project will be <Solution>/<FirstExistingProject> and not <Solution>.
Mmm, I am unable to reproduce this. I tried on a few solutions and also tried the one you have open. I get the solution directory when the inspector solution is opened.
The code always just seems to use solutionFolder.BaseDirectory as the location, which should never be one of the project directories.
The screencast is interesting. The right click menu options are showing menu items for a different node (Xamarin.Inspector). I have seen that sometimes when using the Mac's track pad where the Solution window still seems to think a different tree node is selected. However even after reproducing that I still do not get the project's directory as the location in the New Project dialog.
So I have no idea how this is happening.
