Description Ryan Alford 2016-06-10 11:55:46 UTC
I just upgraded to XS 6, and I am running into a problem. I have an old Windows Mobile project that I am converting to a Xamarin.Android application. Over the past 8 months or so, I have been opening this project in XS, receiving an error about an unsupported project type, and continuing to navigate around the code when I need to.

However, with XS 6, this doesn't work anymore. There is no syntax highlighting and no "Go To Definition" or "Find All References". This has made it crazy difficult to navigate the code. 

This has worked perfectly fine in previous versions of XS. It would be nice if this worked again. I don't need the project to build or run. I just need to be able to navigate the code.

Can you provide me the project in some way ?
Comment 2 Ryan Alford 2016-06-10 15:13:20 UTC
Sure. I will have to make it private as it's proprietary code.
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2016-06-10 15:16:39 UTC
y you can maybe even remove most of the files 1-2 files in the project should be enough :)

Is this a fix that will be just pushed out with the next alpha? Or will it go into a fix that will be released earlier?

It will be in our next service release scheduled for about 1-2 weeks out.
