Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-11-15 15:58:39 UTC
When an EmbeddedResource file is duplicated with copy/paste, the duplicate file has the same resource ID as the original, despite having a new "Foo (copy).png" name.
Comment 1 Marius Ungureanu 2017-09-26 12:34:11 UTC
Marking as fixed. Copying a file into the same folder will create a new EmbeddedResource entry with no Resource ID, thus it'll pick up a new one.

    <EmbeddedResource Include="Folder%28%29\Asdf.cs" />
    <EmbeddedResource Include="Folder%28%29\Asdf %28copy%29.cs" />
