I downloaded Visual Studio Code from the Software Center, but when I go to File, there is no option to create a project. I only have the options of creating a file or Workspace. Isn't that a rather important detail? There is no option to create a Project. How can such a deficient version be released?
From the article Setting up Visual Studio Code:
How do I create and run a new project?
VS Code doesn't include a traditional File > New Project dialog or pre-installed project templates. You'll need to add additional components and scaffolders depending on your development interests. With scaffolding tools like Yeoman and the multitude of modules available through the npm package manager, you're sure to find appropriate templates and tools to create your projects.
