Description PJ 2013-09-12 16:16:47 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1) Create a template project
2) Add an app icon
3) "use asset catalogs"
4) Open the xcassets -> appiconset -> Contents.json
5) Make a change
6) Close the file

Re-open, changes arent saved

7) Make more changes, 
8) Try to save with CMD + S
9) Close

Changed assets are not saved

You can get it to save only if you go to File->Save As and overwrite Contents.json.

Note: The file does not become 'dirty', the tab for the file does not show the file-changed indicator overlaying the close button.

Expected behavior is that these changes should save by default or by File->Save/CMD+S, or should dirty the file and prompt for save on close.
