Description Pierce Boggan [MSFT] 2012-11-19 15:39:49 UTC
Not sure if this is a MonoTouch bug, MonoDevelop bug, both, or not even a bug, but I've been having issues getting it to work.

I'm trying to generate localized XIBs using the "Make Localized" button in Xcode. The only option it provides is English, despite the es.lproj and fr.lproj folders being there. Could it be that Xcode isn't picking these up as they should after opening up the main XIB in MonoDevelop? I'm not all that familiar with localizing XIBs in this manner, so perhaps I am just not following the correct steps.

Note: The default method of using a Localizable.strings works just fine for me!

I have the same problem with the storyboad.

And after generated the localized files I get three storyboard files..

- the original
- en.lproj
- french.lproj

At the making of "screencast" I found that if I put the storyboard in the root directory that there is not "null"
