Description Dylan 2012-10-29 06:04:20 UTC
This is now the third time I have lost changes whilst using MonoDevelop's Android designer. My other developers have noticed a similar thing. I was working on about 5 different layouts, and upon reopening MonoDevelop the layouts are completely empty.  

I am not sure how I have managed to get this right. But basically the .axml files were in a saved state (no * in the tab) and upon closing MonoDevelop there was no dialog asking me to save my files so I assumed everything had been saved. 

M4A 4.2.6
