The "Leave the following resource extensions uncompressed" doesn't work.

1. File > New > Solution > Android Application
2. Within the Solution panel, right-click the Project > Options.
3. In the left-hand tree, select the Build > Android Build entry.
4. In the right-hand panel, in the "Leave the following resource extensions uncompressed" textbox, enter "nocompress"'
5. Click OK.

6. Repeat steps (2)-(3). The "Leave the following resource extensions uncompressed" textbox MUST contain the same value as was entered in (4).

Problem: the textbox in (6) is empty.

Problem: after (5), the .csproj _should_ contain:


It does not.

WORKAROUND: hand-edit the .csproj and add a <AndroidStoreUncompressedFileExtensions/> within the first <PropertyGroup/>. <AndroidStoreUncompressedFileExtensions/> is a semicolon-separated list of file extensions.
