Show All Files menu item
This isn't a bug, but a feature request.
It's annoying that you have to scroll to the top of the solution explorer, right click on the solution (or click the menu actions icon), go to Display Options, then Show All Files every time you want to add new files to the solution. For many of us, copying files into the workspace and then including them in the solution is our standard way of adding new content files (e.g. images), so this task needs to be as fast / efficient as possible and it currently isn't.
What I recommend is to add a show all files / hide all files toggle icon in the solution header (where it says "Solution" on the left and has maximize and close icons on the right.) That way we can include files very quickly. This would match Visual Studio functionality.
The "Show All Files" option is a way of adding files to a project, but in general using the Add Files command is more convenient.
Thanks for the suggestion but Add Files isn't convenient at all. See this ticket I logged a year ago that hasn't gotten any attention: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=27157
OK, let's find a solution.
