[Actual Xamarin version = v126.96.36.199 (build 34a92cd)]
When clicking between controls, a Storyboard file will often be marked as dirty (needing a save/discard to close) if the next control is a UILabel.
1. New single view app
2. Open Main.storyboard
3. Drag out two labels
4. Drag out two image views
6. Click between images (file isn't marked dirty)
7. Click on a label (file will be marked dirty)
[additional optional steps]
9. Click the other label (file is marked dirty again)
11. Click back to an image (file isn't marked dirty)
The very first click on a label after opening a file does not seem to cause this issue, only subsequent selections.
Just to see what was changing, I saved a copy elsewhere, went through the first few steps and saved it again. The file diff tool I was using didn't see any content changes.
This is quite likely to have been fixed in master/c8 builds. Can you try with a newer build to see if the issue has gone away? We did nail a bunch of causes of this exact issue several weeks ago.
I'll assume all cases have been fixed. If not please reopen again! Thanks
