Description pokerstud91 2013-04-19 13:40:52 UTC
When I open a axml layout file in Visual Studio 2012 I can make changes in the 'source' view. Then if I switch tabs to another file and come back, usually the recent changes I have made are erased. The contents of the file go back to either the original contents (just after you create the axml file with just a LinearLayout) or to what was previously saved. 

To correct this, I can simply 'undo' and then the file is back to what is was before I switched tabs (ie. the correct contents of the file). So, its not a huge issue but it's annoying to have to keep undoing whenever I switch tabs to other files.

This has occurred between several versions of Mono Android.

Steps to reproduce.
1) Open Visual Studio and create or open a axml Android file.
2) Make some changes to the file and then open another file.
3) Go back to the axml file and the contents have changed (BUG) 
4) Click 'undo' and the contents will go back to the correct file.

Windows 8, Visual Studio 2012
