Description John Cachat 2014-06-05 15:46:22 UTC
I have Line Endings configured to Windows (in Xamarin Studio preferences as well as at the project level).  Every time I open up a storyboard using the new embedded iOS UI designer, every single .designer.cs file in my entire iOS project is touched and the line endings are changed from Windows to Native!  

I use git for source control so it then sees all of these files as changed.  I need to use windows line endings because we have a mix of Mac and Windows developers and have projects that we shared between Xamarin and a VS/Windows web site.

This is using the latest Xamarin Studio (5.0 build 878) and Xamarin.iOS ( on a Mac.
