Description Ian 2012-10-01 17:13:05 UTC
There appears to be a bug in the editor. When there are 2 Layout xmls with the same name in 2 folders, double clicking one, then the other gives you the same file. 

If you Right click and choose Open with Source Code Editor, it's fine.

Today, with the latest builds:

MFA 4.6.01073
Mono 2.10.12

We have followed the below mentioned steps:

1. Created the new MFA template application.
2. Added the new folder with the name "layout1" under the resources folder, so
that two folders appears under the resources folder: "layout" and "layout1".
3. Now add a new android layout with the same name as the present one:
"Main.axml" in the folder "layout1"
4. Observe that the fresh empty file Main.axml automatically updates itself to
contain the content of the "Main.axml" appearing in the folder "layout"

Which shows that the issue still exists.

However, if we add another layout with the different name such as "Main1.axml",
then the changes are saved only to the one which is opened.

Not changing the status of the issue, as we are not sure about the correct

PJ look into it and confirm the correct behavior and let us know about the
further course of action for this issue.
