Description MadansMSFT 2017-03-13 14:51:14 UTC
we have a forms app.

the issue i am facing is that the debugger is not stepping into a referenced PCL.

for example


Debugger is breaking into app.droid and app.forms. but not breaking into app.common

i am not sure when this started but most definitely in the past 2 weeks.

This bug is actually a duplicate of Bug 52760 and it's already fixed and will be included in our next release.

As a candidate in-place .targets file edit that you apply for the issue, see Bug 52760, Comment 13 (about adding "_SplitProjectReferencesByFileExistence" to the `DependsOnTargets` attribute).
