In the latest stable version of Xamarin Studio (4.0.1 as of this writing) there is no means of re-ordering the elements in an XML properties file such as Root.plist. I had to resort to opening the file in TextEdit and moving the XML elements around. Tedious and error prone.
I see this was requested, sort of, in 3889. That one is marked as resolved but a re-ordering facility ain't there yet.
Does not seem to have made it into 4.0.2 either.
Yea, unfortunately I haven't gotten around to implementing this yet.
bumping up the priority on this so that as soon as I finish my current task, I'll be less likely to overlook this one.
We sadly overlooked this because for standard Info.plist document editing, order is typically less important, but for Settings.bundle plist files it is pretty darn important ;-)
Ended up implementing this in git master yesterday
