Description Joseph Hanna 2013-08-07 22:33:54 UTC
Description of Problem:
Version Control -> "Review Solution Changes" is permanently disabled in the pulldown menu after upgrading to 4.0.11.  It is still available when you right-click on the solution or project.  I use GIT for source control.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Upgrade to 4.0.11
2. Make changes to source code
3. Click on "Version Control" menu and see that "Review Solution Changes" is disabled.
4. Right-click on the solution in the Solution explorer, select "Version Control" and notice that "Review Solution Changes" is available for selection.

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
As per versions prior to 4.0.11, the menu option should be available (not disabled) after source code changes have been made.

How often does this happen? 
All the time since upgrading to 4.0.11.

I am sorry, I did not set the correct O/S.  I am using Xamarin Studio on Mac.

Comment 2 Marius Ungureanu 2013-08-08 11:35:48 UTC
Does this still occur in 4.0.12? I can't manage to reproduce it, that's why.
Comment 3 Joseph Hanna 2013-08-08 20:39:53 UTC
Yes, this is still happening, and on two different machines.

I have occasionally had it appear, and when I choose it, it shows an empty list of changes.  If I immediately right-click on the solution, choose Version Control->Review Changes, it opens a second window showing me the modified source files.

Please see screenshot attachment showing how the pulldown menu is disabled but the context menu shows the option is enabled.  I had two source files modified at the time of taking the screenshot.

Yeah, I have found the cause of the problem. Will get it in the branch.
Comment 6 Marius Ungureanu 2013-08-19 07:51:55 UTC
This is no longer an issue as it has been fixed.
