Cannot set build action



I want to use Rider for MonoGame development, but I have some problems with the Content files. I created a folder named Content, and added a file with the Right Click -> Add Existing Item option. It created a link to the file (it didn't ask if I want to copy or link) and I wanted to set the Build Action to Copy to Output folder. But if I go to the Properties of the item, it says 'Cannot edit properties for this item'. :(

I'm on macOS, using the latest Rider EAP


Hi! Thank you for the feedback. I have reproduced the problem.

Try to do the following:

1. Put the folder with your files inside the project 

2. In the SolutionExplorer enable "Show all Files"

3. In the context menu of the folder in the SolutionExplorer call "Include"
