This is annoying when you just want to view code.

VS should not prompt until you do something that requires the Mac. This is especially annoying in Xamarin.Forms projects, where developers are just evaluating Xamarin and want to see the APIs - and may not necessarily have access to a Mac yet.
Joe, I have a proposal that covers a few things I want to address wtr the Mac pairing experience. I think this particular bug needs to be fixed before build, but after let's talk about getting the other improvements in alongside it.
Mac agent itself is great, we should bring up the onboarding experience in VS to match it.

Moving this to milestone 15.4, given that XMA has suffered a lot of changes and re designs in order to decouple it from iOS and make it a separate feature with support to multi platform connections (this was necessary to support Xamarin IoT).
This particular case needs to be re discussed based on this new design and see what is the correct solution
Fixed in version 188.8.131.525 (d15-3)

Just to be clear, even though this was filed for Xamarin.Mac, it also needs to be verified for Xamarin.iOS applications.
Most importantly, developers should not be prompted to pair a Mac when they are attempting to work with a Xamarin.Forms projects (where they may be able to do a lot of work against Android or UWP before needing to worry about iOS).
