Description Alan McGovern 2011-08-31 11:03:39 UTC
If I open a MonoTouch project and immediately try to build/run the project using the apple menubar at the top of the screen, the items are all disabled. If i open the solution pane and select (or right click?) on the solution, the Build/Run items there are enabled and if I check back in the apple menubar, they're enabled there then.

These should be enabled by default once a project is opened.

I guess that would be because there's no "last selected solution" set at that point.

I can't reproduce this. Can you still repro?
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2011-09-21 08:33:36 UTC
Yup, the problem is still there. Just create a new console application and try to build it immediately and the options are greyed out.
Comment 4 Lluis Sanchez 2011-09-21 08:43:05 UTC
Still can't repro. After creating a console project, the options in the build menu are enabled. Can you make a screencast?

Fixed in master. I could not reproduce because my solution pad was visible by default.
