The PCL selector should show which targets will be included implicitly, like VS does:

Alternative fix:

[15:49:10] <mhutch>	 yeah it might actually make sense to allow the user to pick the profile directly
[15:49:17] <mhutch>	 we could have a combobox at the top
[15:49:40] <mhutch>	 and checking frameworks would change the combobox selection
[15:49:54] <baulig>	 oh, good idea
[15:50:19] <mhutch>	 and changing items in the combobox would check/uncheck frameworks
[15:50:25] <baulig>	 At the moment, you don't know which profile you'll end up with without looking into the .csproj file
[15:50:44] <baulig>	 oh that sounds cool :-)
[15:51:00] <baulig>	 maybe select between PCLv1 and v2?
[15:51:06] <baulig>	 or put everything into one combo box?
[15:51:29] <mhutch>	 and maybe show an icon beside "selected automatically" frameworks
[15:51:36] <mhutch>	 I would say just one
[15:52:01] <mhutch>	 reformat to e.g. "v4.5 Profile7"

After creating PCL project option in available in "project options" window under Build>> General tab
