Sample Project

The iPad Retina Simulator does not show the 2x version of images when the image is set in Interface Builder from MonoDevelop using MonoTouch.

I've found that my images appear @2x when I do UIImage.FromFile but NOT when set from IB for iPad Retina via MD & MT.

Please see the attached sample project, if you look at the images and then run the iPad retina simulator, you'll see what I mean.

Duplicating the exact behaviour in a pure XCode project and the simulator picks up the 2x variant correctly.

Rolf: any chance you could look into this? I tried digging into this when the bug was first reported but could not find anything that MonoDevelop was doing wrong (hence why I had reassigned to MonoTouch).

This smells like a simulator bug.

It works on device, and it works if I delete the normal icon, so the simulator can definitively find the @2x image if it wants to.
