Please create a new report on
Developer Community or GitHub with
your current version information, steps to reproduce, and relevant error
messages or log files if you are hitting an issue that looks similar to
this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
Steps to reproduce :
1) Click "New solution" -> Multiplatform App -> Native Single View App, then create the solution (PCL or Shared Library, with Android and iOS platforms checked)
2) Set the Android project as startup project
3) XS now shows "Debug | iPhoneSimulator"
4) If you click to choose a different configuration, it shows other iPhone configurations
Here is a screenshot : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8UOrvmccd7PVXFiSDBWaEUwSU0/view?usp=sharing
On OSX 10.11.3, tested on XS 6.0 Build 4520 and XS 5.10.2 Build 56
This is caused by iOS having iPhoneSimulator platforms and Android doesn't and the order in which the projects are added to the sln appears to make a difference to how the configuration mappings are handled.
I've switched the order and this reduces the issue somewhat, although when the Android project is selected as start up we still show the iPhone* configurations but we don't select one by default.
