Description Rich Zwaap 2015-11-30 17:02:53 UTC
Selecting permissions via the Android Manifest tab on the properties page of a Xamarin Android app project fails when using a keyboard.  To reproduce:

1.) Open a Xamarin Android app project in Visual Studio
2.) Open the project's properties page
3.) Select the Android Manifest tab
4.) Under "Required permissions," click the first permission listed to highlight it.
5.) Using the keyboard, press the spacebar to select the permission 
6.) Save the changes
7.) Open the project's AndroidManifest.xml file.  Notice that the permission is not present.
8.) On the properties page, use the mouse to check a different permission.
9.) Check the AndroidManifest.xml file again.  Note that the permissions there are now in sync with those selected on the properties page.
