I added some images from a directory and missed adding some.  Some items were missing.  When I later went to add the items, I didn't want to add the ones that were already there because they may have been changed, so I choose the "Apply To All" and hit "No" to the Overrite existing items.  I expected that the new items would be added that didn't exist, but instead nothing was added.  I had to overwrite the existing items and the undo checkout in order to add the new items.

Hi Todd
Thank you for taking the time to raise this feedback. We have reproduced your issue as described.

Whilst we recognize that Visual Studio's behavior is somewhat confusing for your specific scenario, this is a longstanding behavior and we do not plan to change it at this time. If we recieve a significant volume of further customer requests for this change, we will reconsider for a future release.

Thank you again for your input,

Mark Wilson-Thomas
Visual Studio Platform Team

I attached a copy of the dialog. Checking "Apply to all items" and hitting the "No" button will not add the new files that are in already in the project.

Hi Todd,

We are having a hard time understanding the scenario you report. Can you send us a screenshot of the dialog that has the "Apply To All" so that we can understand where you are working?
