Steps to reproduce:

1) Change the bundle identifier in the project options form
2) Click the "Cancel" button
3) Open the project options again and note the value has persisted.

Note - this doesn't seem to persist when the project is closed but it does cause some confusion.

On which kind of project?
Comment 2 Rob DeRosa 2015-04-16 12:12:22 UTC
This was an iOS Unified project. Haven't tested w/ Android yet.
Comment 3 Jeffrey Stedfast 2015-04-16 16:34:00 UTC
This is why Hutch and I have been saying we need to remove the Info.plist editor from the Project Options, because there's no way to do what you want.
Comment 4 Jeffrey Stedfast 2015-04-17 15:29:35 UTC
Actually, it looks like the values are not actually saved, it's just that when you dismiss the dialog, it simply hides the dialog and doesn't destroy it, so when you open the dialog again, all it does is re-show what was there when you last had it open.

I still think we should nuke this panel, though.
