Version Information and Logs
One of our customer is facing the following issue.
I just noticed renaming a layout file in Xamarin Android (Visual Studio) doesn't work properly. Changes you make to a renamed file are saved to the old file, even though it seems you're editing the new file. After closing the solution and re-opening the solution I see the old .axml-file with my changes and the new file contains the code from when I renamed the file.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new Android-project in Visual Studio
2. Add a layout file and inflate it in some Activity
3. Rename the layout file and change some of the layout.
4. Reload the solution and notice the old layout file contains the changes and the new file doesn't.
I have tried to reproduce this issue and getting the same behavior. I followed the steps mentioned in bug description to reproduce this issue.
