If Xamarin.Mac project is added to solution with PCL, XamMac .dll is referenced with a red X which displays "Assembly not found for framework Mono / .NET 4.5".
Steps to Reproduce:
1) File > New Solution...
2) Select C# > Portable Library
3) Enter any name for the project and click OK
4) Right-click on solution and select Add > Add New Project...
5) Select C# > Mac > Classic API > Empty Xamarin.Mac Project
6) Enter any name for the project and click OK
7) Expand the Mac-specific project's references
XamMac reference has a red circle with an X in it indicating some kind of error
XamMac should be referenced correctly
The order of the project creation seems to matter. If the order is PCL, then Mac then the bug occurs. If the order is Mac, then PCL then the bug does not occur.
Furthermore, once the bug has occurred, right-clicking on "References" and selecting "Edit References" does not show XamMac under the "All" tab.
Build Date & Platform:
Unsure what build date is referring to, but running Mac OSX 10.9.4
I have checked this issue and I am able to reproduce it. To reproduce it I have followed steps mentioned in the bug description.
