Description Brendan Zagaeski (Xamarin Team, assistant) 2014-03-13 21:17:47 UTC
## Steps to reproduce
1. Install XamarinVS.iOS 1.10.39 (or a development build of 1.12 or master).

2. Note the "Date Modified" of the files in the `Facades` directory:
> C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\MonoTouch\v1.0\Facades

3. Open Visual Studio, and navigate to "Tools -> Options -> Xamarin -> iOS Settings".

4. Pair with a build host.

5. Click the "Check Now" link for "SDK And API Documentation Sync", and proceed to synchronize the SDK.

## Result

The files in the top assemblies directory are updated:
> C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\MonoTouch\v1.0

But the files in the `Facades` sub-directory are not.

Similarly, files that only exist on the build host are copied as expected into the top directory, but new files in the `Facades` directory are not copied.

## Version information

Tested with XamarinVS.iOS 1.10.39, and the latest development builds from of 1.12 and master.

Tested with Xamarin.iOS on the build host.

I have checked this issue and I am able to reproduce this issue.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create an "iOS Hello world Application" in "Visual Studio 2013".
2. Navigate to "Tools -> options -> Xamarin -> iOS Settings" and pair with build host.
3. Click on " Check Now" Link for "SDk and API Documentation Sync".
4. Synchronize the SDK.

I observed that when I synchronize the SDK, it only updated files in top assemblies directory  i.e. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\MonoTouch\v1.0
" but file in "Facades directory are not updated".

Windows OS
VS 2013
Xamarin.iOS : 1.10.47

I have checked this issue and observed that the option " Check Now" Link for "SDk and API Documentation Sync". has been removed.
