Description CraigD 2014-05-28 15:24:36 UTC
Created attachment 6898 [details]
Build Action menu missing EmbeddedResource option

Xamarin Studio 5 (build 878)

Xamarin.Forms solution template using Shared Project

Added Xamarin.Forms XAML ContentPage

Can't get the XAML class to compile (InitializeComponent() is not generated or something) so I changed the Build Action from EmbeddedResource.

Now EmbeddedResource is *missing* from the Build Action menu so I can't set it back.

(this is probably a Xamarin Studio issue, I guess...)
