Is there a way to create the corresponding file on Alt+O wenn it doesn't exist?

Example Workflow: I use "Move Selection to New File" to create some header, and now I want to add imlementations to the corresponding .cpp.

However Alt+O doesn't do anything, "Create Definition" creates it in the header file (which is good for the use case of header-only code)

- Am I missing something obvious/easy?

Maybe I am missing something here, but adding the file in the correct folder with Visual Studio is a bit lengthy (select correct file type, locate the right folder, re-type the file name)

- If not, feature suggestion:

Alt+O, when no file is found, could ask for the file to be created (including asking for the file name, so I can adjust the extension).

I believe this was discussed a long time before, but rejected at that time IIRC because 'we avoid creating files' - which has changed since.

You are probably looking for the command Create File:


which will create the matching file, and if you are creating a new header file, it will include it into the current, matching cpp file.
