What do you mean by "not added automatically"?

  • To the filename when created using File->New->Source File?
  • To the project when created using File->New->Source File?
  • To the project when created externally?
  • Something else?

Tell us what you've done and what you expected to happen.

When you create C++ Source file, Eclipse IDE failed to append the right extension which is .cpp for LINUX instead it create a default file which you should manually append the .cpp extention to file so Eclipse can recognized it as a source file C++, depsite all options are set well in the Eclipse editor. I am using the Latest version 2021 of Eclipse IDE.

>After create C++ Project
> New > Source file.
> It create Text file but you have to append .cpp to make it C++ source file

I don't think it ever did.
.cpp isn't the only extent possible there's .cxx and .C for instance.
You can edit the templates but I'm not sure if you can edit the
filename with them.

Update
Other extents: https://stackoverflow.com/a/5171821
CDT Help: http://help.eclipse.org/2021-09/topic/org.eclipse.cdt.doc.user/getting_started/cdt_w_newcpp.htm?cp=10_1_4

The help actually tells you to add .cpp yourself
See the help To create a C++ file: Step (2)
