Forum Cross Platform with Xamarin

Shared library for native cross platform missing

Hi All, its been a whilst since I have done a lot of xamarin dev work however I have just installed VS studio on 2 new Macbooks and also checked my PC running vs 2019 and the option to create a crossplatform native app with a shared library is missing (its still possible on my old macbook for some reason)

I don't mean the PCL library but the shared library (The one with no references ) just to be clear. Why has this all been removed as I have no interest in forms and was the only good reason to use xamarin for BL code sharing.

It seems the only workaround is to create a project incrementally, i.e create a native android app, then add an ios app to the same solution and then a shared library !!!

Could anyone explain the reasoning behind this.

Many Thanks Sam
