Feature Request: Add empty text file to Add New Item for COBOL Items

I don't seem to be able to add a plain empty text file to the project:

 All the files in this list come with some template content and/or pre-set compiler options.

Please add a plain, empty text file item to the list of items to add to a COBOL project.

  • I agree that this would be nice to have and it is something that a C# project provides.

    As a workaround for now, if you right-click on the Solution-->Add New Item, Text File will be in the list. This will add it to the solution and from there you can drag it to your project.

  • Thanks, Chris, for your valuable answer again.

    Yes, good thought. I agree, it can be done ...

    ... But, well, it leaves a cheesy odour behind, though, because the file is kept hidden in the solution directory, even though you move it to a project directory. So chances are, that orphans are inadvertently added to the repository (e.g. a Git repository), resulting in pesky approval discussions etc. (You probably know the string of consequences.)
