Partial View not being published

I encountered a bit of a problem today. I've added a partial view manually to the project (i.e. it wasn't generated by the VS). To my annoyance, when I deployed the application to the test server the *.cshtml was not copied. After a bit of digging around, I found the problem. It turned out that by default VS sets the "Build Action" to "None". Simply changing it to "Content" should solve the problem.
