Visual Studio screenshot of Info.plist showing as tabular issue

I'm at the point now where I need to add icons to my testing app however, the Info.plist is not showing up properly.  It's showing as tabular, without any icons as before.  This is the alpha version the most recent version.  I can't change any settings or add icons and other functionality.

Hi @jausby

You can get the other view in two ways:

Option 1: Go to Solution Explorer, select the iOS project, right click and go to Properties. In that view you have also the old info.plist options.

Option 2: Right click on your info.plist file and select "Open with..." and pick "Property List Editor" from the options.

If you need to open the .plist file with the new hierarchical generic editor, it's listed as "Generic PList Editor".

Hope that helps!
