https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14524

          Issue ID: 14524
           Summary: Right clicking in solution explorer to add folders
                    does not work as expected
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: VisualD
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: Philip.Daniels1971 gmail.com

I can right click in the solution explorer to create a folder, but this appears
to just be a "solution folder". No actual folder is created on disk, which
means that the next step - creating a source file in that folder - fails.

The only way that works seems to be to create the folder in Visual D, flip to
Windows explorer and create the backing folder on disk, then flip back to
Visual D to add a new file, being careful to specify the "Create in" correctly
at the bottom of the Add New Item dialog box.

Basically, it should work the way it does in C#:

Right Click -> Add New Folder creates a new folder in solution explorer and on
disk.
Right Click Folder -> Add New Item opens the Add New Item dialog box with the
Location synced to the folder.
