Description martin.robins 2016-02-24 23:31:10 UTC
Create a new Xamarin Forms (portable) project in Visual Studio.
Create a simple XAML page in a portable library project as follows...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<MasterDetailPage xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms"
									Title="MasterDetailPage" IsPresented="False">
		<ContentPage Title="Master">
			<Label Text="Master"
						 HorizontalOptions="Center" />
		<ContentPage Title="Details">
			<Label Text="Detail"
						 HorizontalOptions="Center" />

Change app.cs to set MainPage = new Views.MainPage() (or whatever you called yours)

Run the UWP version of the app on the desktop (Windows 10).

The MasterDetailPage.Master content is visible; it should not be.

While the behavior here was originally a "bug" as described, we did not intend to allow the use of IsPresented in Split mode on the desktop. There was a PR recently merged in which involves this (https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/707). Please use the Popover mode if you would like to use IsPresented.
