Description Hugo 2014-02-09 19:54:33 UTC
In "Supported Device Orientations" under "iPad Deployment Info" in the "iOS Application" tab in the project properties, the buttons seem to deselect themselves whenever I close the project properties. The iPhone device orientations, however, remain unchanged.

I'm currently using both landscape options, although I don't think that has anything to do with it.

More info: running VS2012 in administrator mode does not solve the problem. The problem only occurs whenever the project properties tab is closed, not when you switch to another tab and back.

Today we have tried to reproduce this issue. But we are unable to reproduce it.

We have followed the steps mention in screencast : http://screencast.com/t/g2iqUPrjA

Please have a look and let us know if we have to follow some other steps to reproduce this issue.

Those are the exact steps I take, but with you the bug doesn't occur.

I've checked the Info.plist file, which is properly updated when modifying the values inside the menu then saving. It writes properly, and other values are properly read. Only the iPad orientation values are ignored when reading. The order of the key/values in Info.plist does not seem to matter.

In Info.plist, this part is ignored:

Is there any other information I can give to help?
