I suggest you ...

Add a way of adding both .cpp and .h file at the same time with the same name.

It's funny, because it sounds so trivial, but in c++ you generally add a cpp and h file at the same time with the same name, it's such a typical action to make in a project...

In visual studio, that action takes quite a few clicks and typing, you end up filling out the details for the header file, only to have to do it all again for the cpp file.

Perhaps a checkbox to allow it to create both files at once for you would be nice, or to be able to select cpp and h file type and it creates them both for you at once.

Keep up the awesome work guys :D Love the tool, it's unbelievably good.

        Exactly - so simple and so frustrating doing practically same thing twice every time a *.C/*.CPP and *.H file pair is added. Check box is also fine, but I would prefer multiple selection straight from the file type select menu, as it's faster to click on larger field of file type than on check-box. Also that would work in all select orders for both C and CPP files, otherwise if you select H file and then check the box, how would VS know if you want to add C or CPP file with H file? That would limit the function to be used only with first click on C / CPP and not H file. So speed + homogeneous UI = work efficiency squared IMO. And yes - best tool ever, the incredible amount of work given out to community for free is truly appreciated.
