Description Owen Stewart 2013-05-13 10:05:41 UTC
Open Xamarin Studio
Select project
Choose iPad simulator
Build project
Ipad simulator opens
Hit stop
Target drop down changes automatically to iPhone simulator
If you don't notice and press play the iPhone simulator will open 

Subsequent (successful) builds also change the disabled drop down back to iPhone simulator as the simulator launches

It's really annoying if you're trying to debug anything. At least the old bug you just had to remember to reselect the correct simulator the first time Xamarin studio opened and then it remembered your choice until restart.

I've been trying all week to reproduce this and I simply cannot. It never switches on me.

Please tell me what I am doing differently/wrong: http://screencast.com/t/J8hZ39O4HE

this was likely related to bug #12260 which was fixed
