Description Aaron Bockover 2011-12-21 16:21:13 UTC
The dialog to deploy the runtime/app to Android (and select which device/emulator, etc.) is modally parented to the main VS window.

This means that while the deploy operation is happening, I cannot interact with VS at all. During these times I would like to possibly browse or edit code, but can't because I'm waiting on the deploy operation, which often takes a minute or so.

Please make this dialog not modal so I can minimize it or move it out of the way and interact with VS.

Fixed for 4.2.
