Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-10-06 07:18:49 UTC
When I use the "quick properties->copy to output" context menu on the build pad, the selection is cleared. If you use the "build action" context menu, the selection changes to only the top item and then actually visually moves down the items, presumably as it changed them, and is left on the last one.

Note that in the case of changing the build action, it's visibly slow because it's doing a lot of unnecessary UI work walking the selection through the items. Also it's actually possible for users to change the selection while it's moving though the items, which seems very likely to break things.

I can no longer reproduce this, seems very quick now.
