                                  • I've been pleasantly surprised to discover that the Move Type to File refactoring now also copies the // comments found at the very beginning of the source file. Thank you for that!

                                    However, if the source file has this encoding:

                                    Unicode (UTF-8 with signature) [see attached image]

                                    the comment won't be copied over to the new file. I suppose you are not properly handling the fact that the file starts with a UTF-8 BOM .
                                    Use the File > Advanced Save Options to set the encoding appropriately.

                                    And it would also be nice if the new file would also use the same encoding as the original source file.

                                  I've had occurrences of Move Type to File where the top comment of the file was not copied to the output source file, even when the source didn't have a BOM. So my hypothesis might be wrong. And the issue is more far-reaching than I thought (not sure how to reproduce the bug, however)

                                  In my running instance of Visual Studio 2015, extracting `Bar` from the attached file does not copy the copyright comments.

                                  I have created a new ticket for this issue - "Move Type To File" should preserve encoding for a new file
                                  Once we resolve the problem, we will let you know about this in the context of the new ticket.
