These are a few enhancement requests for the new android archive manager and publishing workflow introduced in 4.2:
1. The Wizard Path is not clickable. Thus one has to use the "Back" button instead to move between steps. I believe it would be very beneficial for users to easily jump between labeled Wizard Steps.
2. It's not obvious to the user to double click the keystore for keystore details. I believe a enabled/disabled "Details" button would help the user discover this. Or a coach mark letting the user know they can do this:
3. The keystore path should be shown in the details dialog. The only indication of where the keystore is stored is an extra step in the "View in Explorer" button just see which keystore is being used.
Thus I believe this information should be in the Keystore details below the alias:
Fixed in version 184.108.40.206 (master)
Commit: feff65dfb4dd9e80cbf300b863e0829f8051dadb (xamarin/XamarinVS)
Fixed in version 220.127.116.11 (cycle8)
Commit: 7f2a56e66b4f7831a76ba7a383784b70a263690a (xamarin/XamarinVS)
Clarifying how we've implemented the fixes:
1. The user can now click on any of the nodes in the Wizard Path, and the wizard will be rewinded to that step.
2. As a coaching mark, we added a Tooltip to the list items, saying "Double-click for more info..."
3. When double-clicking on the Keystore, the detail now show as the first piece of info the path, like:
Keystore Path: "C:\Users\joe\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Mono for Android\Keystore\TestKey - 5\TestKey.keystore"
Alias name: TestKey
Creation date: Oct 11, 2016
Entry type: PrivateKeyEntry

I have checked this issue with latest Master XVS 18.104.22.168 and cycle 8 XVS 22.214.171.124 and observed that all cases are working as expected as mentioned in comment 3.
Hence closing this issue.
