The source file that does not show completely in Xamarin editor

I dont know how this came about - because all I did, was copy the content of a source file to clipbaord (becuase I was going to delete the file) - paste it into TextPad, then delete the file in Xamarin, create a new C# file, and paste it back in... but only the first few lines of text appeared!!

So, I went back to TextEdit, and just saved the content over the top of the source file that Xamarin had open.
Xamarin asked me if I wanted to reload, I said yes, but still, only half the content was visible.
Here is the file (attached)

What version of Xamarin Studio? Do you have a screenshot?
Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2013-06-28 02:19:28 UTC
fixed - thanks for the file, without it it wouldn't have been possible.

I mark it as high - even if it's unlikely that this happens I consider it as a critical bug.

(IDEs shouldn't eat code - ok technically in that case the code isn't eaten - it's just put into the stove)

Note: that requires mcs patches as well.

Sorry - only just got back online now!

I did try making a video - but my Mac is refusing to comply ;) Good times.

Great to hear it is fixed. Thanks team!

I have checked this issue with following builds:

All Mac
X.S 4.2.3(build 127)
X.Android 4.12.0-8
X.iOS 7.0.6-167

Now I am getting full code when paste into new file. This is the screncast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/wnui3OOiaco
