Description Neal 2011-10-13 22:28:34 UTC

It seems with the 2.8 release of MonoDevelop some issues from about 1-2 years ago have resurfaced.  The main issue is that at times I'm unable to expand items in the solution (file) explorer mainly when it's pinned out.  If I leave it to auto-hide it works better, but I like to keep it pinned open.  I often have to click in the code window and then go back to the solution explorer to change focus and then it will work.

The same problem is with the buttons on the toolbar such as the undo button.  I can't repeatedly click the undo button, I have to click, move off the button, go back to the button to click again.

I left the solution explorer in pinned open and click on the code window to move focus and then move to solution explorer to expand/ collapse the hierarchy. i was able to expand and collapse the hierarchy repeatedly without getting screen hang. 

Could you please suggest if I am in wrong direction.

Today we have checked this issue on following builds :

XS 4.0.9 (build 3)
Mono 3.0.11

Now we are able to expand and close solution tree.

Hence closing this issue. Changing its status to verified.
