Description bryan costanich 2013-03-20 21:12:20 UTC
If you're working in the Xamarin Android Designer and make changes, if you hit Cmd+S, the file doesn't save. You have to go up to file > save.

I can't reproduce. Does it always fail or only sometimes? Can you paste the version info from the about box?
Comment 2 bryan costanich 2013-03-21 12:46:54 UTC
i just figured out more info - if you're in the properties pad, e.g., let's say you just edited the control ID, then the commands aren't available in there. i think that's the issue.
Comment 3 Lluis Sanchez 2013-03-21 13:50:58 UTC
Yes, most commands are contextual, they are only enabled when the view to which they apply has the focus. Maybe could make an exception for the Save command, since the only purpose of that command (right now) is to save the currently active view. However, we plan to add support for placing editors side by side (a very demanded feature), and then the save command will have to require an editor to have the focus, since it will be the only way to know which editor the user wants to save.
Comment 4 bryan costanich 2013-03-21 13:54:01 UTC
but that doesn't make sense. the toolbox is part of the editor. it's context is directly wired to whatever view is in focus, yeah? so if i'm editing a control's properties in the toolbox, when i hit save, it should be for that control's file.

I guess you mean the property pad. Yes, that makes sense for the property pad, since as you say it is tied to the designer. I'll fix it.
Comment 6 bryan costanich 2013-03-21 14:54:02 UTC
yeah, that one. sorry. 

Comment 7 Lluis Sanchez 2013-03-22 09:01:08 UTC
