Description Dan Siegel 2016-08-01 19:55:23 UTC
Currently all plist's opened in Visual Studio behave as if we are working on the Info.plist. While that's great for the info.plist, The Entitlements.plist and Settings.bundle/*.plist should behave in their respective anticipated manners with a designer that provides the necessary help for designing or editing these files.

Specifically for the Settings.bundle it would be great to have a Gui that helps visualize the Root and any sub bundles in addition to displaying the appropriate keys available based on the control type.
