I recently updated my SPFx framework to v1.5.0 and I wanted to create a solution that has both Extensions (Application Customizer) and Client Side Webparts. Now if I try creating a WebPart first and then try adding an Extension with
(yo @microsoft/sharepoint), I get prompted asking :
Add a new Web Part to solution ######
?What is your Web part name ?

The same thing applies for Extensions as well. My ask is has MS removed the ability to add both Extensions and WebParts to single solution ?
Any pointers is/are welcome...

This was indeed a bug with SPFx v 1.5.

It was fixed with recently released SPFx 1.5.1. Simply update your yeoman generator and recreate the projects using the below commandlet:

npm install @microsoft/generator-sharepoint@latest -g
