Dropdown activated - shows 5 versions of same AppIcon resource

Hi guys, 

There appears to be a slight problem within Info.plist -> iPad Icons -> App, Spotlight and Settings Icons -> Asset Catalog dropdown.

Please see the pic below. 

There is only one Asset Catalog in the Solution Explorer however I am unable to actually open to view the icons. Moreover, on build a "AppIcons.xcassets" is created within the /Resources tree. The properties of this generate namespace indicate that all images are there with Build Action set to "ImageAsset" and "Copy always". 

Is this correct behavior?

Hi John,
It seems something got wrongly saved in you project and that's causing all the issues you've described. 

Since we couldn't reproduce this bug, I'll need to ask you for some information:
- Could you attach your project or a sample project in which we can reproduce this issue?
- Which Visual Studio, Xamarin for Visual Studio, Xamarin iOS versions are you using? (Help -> About Microsoft Visual Studio)
- Could you reproduce this issue with a new project? Are you hitting it right after creating the project or after making some changes to the project/Asset catalog? 

Thanks for your help!
