Description bryan costanich 2016-01-07 05:25:02 UTC
Xamarin Studio will often get stuck in a modal state where none of the menu items are accessible.

This is most often repro'd when you open up the preferences window, switch to another app, switch back to XS, close the preferences window.

Note, the version info below is because i'm using a preview version for F# support, but it also happens in 5.10, and many people see it.

The same bug comes to me, especially use the open file dialog, then click the dropdownlist to change location.
Comment 2 Frost 2016-01-07 09:49:09 UTC
The main menu is disabled since I run the NSOpenPanel or NSSavePanel and click the directory comboBox in it. 
It seems is a same problem as above description.
