Description Stephen Shaw 2014-12-24 12:22:17 UTC
Since XS seems to be fairly crashy it is really annoying to be in the middle of working on something, have it crash, and then when you relaunch it all of the open files are from the previous session.

For example, if I was working on the network code in my app in the last session and decide to switch to all UI stuff and it crashes before I close XS, when I relaunch it it'll have all of the network code files open instead of the UI files I was just working on.

I have checked this issue with the latest master build:

and observed that I am still able to reproduce this issue with this build. To reproduce this issue I have followed the steps mentioned below:

1. Create an android application in XS.
2. Open layout folder, add some more designer file to Layout folder.
3. Open all designer files in design view.
4. Open some .cs file.
5. Navigate all the files.
6. Save and close the solution.

Actual result: I observed that XS goes crash and after relaunching the XS code files open instead of the UI files I was just working on.

This issue doesn't seems fixed to me, so as of now I am closing this issue.

Comment 5 Marius Ungureanu 2017-02-14 09:32:10 UTC
Comment #3 is a different issue which is caused by the designers not being marked as saveable in the Xamarin Studio state. Marking the bug as fixed, as this now uses timers instead of waiting for XS to close to save the workspace state.
Comment 6 Marius Ungureanu 2017-02-14 09:32:35 UTC
Comment #3 also shows the expected behaviour. Marking as verified.
