Description Aaron Sky 2015-05-14 17:35:39 UTC
VS is unable to detect the LaunchImage catalog created in XS for WatchKitCatalog. Because of this, making any change in the iOS Application Properties window for the main app project will result in the existing XSLaunchImageAssets key-value pair being removed from the Info.plist, since the field is changed to blank in the Properties window.

This bug exists in both XVS 3.11.456 and XVS 3.11.570.

Reproduction Steps:
0. Clone the latest WatchKitCatalog in monotouch-samples/master
!. Open WatchKitCatalog solution
2. Open Info.plist in the WatchKitCatalog project
3. Observe the key-value pair for XSLaunchImageAssets
4. Open Properties>iOS Application window for the WatchKitCatalog project
5. Observe the blank Launch Images asset catalog combo box
6. Change the build number (or any other field) and save.
7. Observe the missing key-value pair for XSLaunchImageAssets.
