Description PJ 2012-06-11 12:32:08 UTC
While following:


you cannot execute step 3 using MonoDevelop on Windows 7.

Simple test case:
Start new MFA solution.
Add a new folder under Resources, call it Layout-large (or layout-large)
Add a file to this new folder (right click folder->Add new file)

New file is added to the new folder.

New file is added to the main layout folder.

Workaround attempt steps:
Drag the new file to the layout-large folder

File should move to the new folder


Entire sequence:

Correct behavior (Visual Studio): http://screencast.com/t/gIWCFISGDp

Attempts with other filenames, etc (for one file it worked fine, however several failed): http://screencast.com/t/XMulBAmE2f

Seen on:

MD (beta)
MFA 4.2.3 (beta)
Mono 2.10.9_11

I investigated a bit, this seems to be part of the designer.
