Comment 1 Daniel Cazzulino 2016-05-09 17:12:46 UTC
This is actually a missing template in VS F# tools, rather than Xamarin (since a shared asset project isn't intrinsically Xamarin or anything else).

Please report it on the F# repo at https://github.com/Microsoft/visualfsharp/issues 

You can see no such template is provided in their source at https://github.com/Microsoft/visualfsharp/tree/132f076de37b3db43ff523fd73c59bcbd486b6ed/vsintegration/ProjectTemplates and https://github.com/Microsoft/visualfsharp/blob/132f076de37b3db43ff523fd73c59bcbd486b6ed/vsintegration/deployment/VsProDeployTemplates/source.extension.vsixmanifest

Thanks!
