Item and project templates

Hi! Is it possible to create item and project templates as in Visual Studio? Thanks!

    It's possible but it involves creating an addin.

    Here's the guide to creating a simple addin.

    Here's the source of some addins that only contain templates.

    That's an awful lot of complicated xml just to create a project template. Any plans to add this functionality to XS?

    We probably should have Addin templates if we don't already that include a template addin.xml file or something.

    If one doesn't exist, could you file a bug about it?

    We're not looking for Addin templates. We want to set up a project in XS and save it as a project template. Any time spent creating/debugging an addin to set up a project would far outweigh the amount of time saved using such an addin.

    This just seems like basic functionality for a professional IDE.
