Screen recorder

I have problems setting autosizing in the designer in Visual studio.

When i open my storyboard file and try to change/set autosizing for a control it almost always resets itself after 2-3 seconds.
It works sometimes if i close the storyboard file and open it again, but then only for one component/control, the next one (and everyone after) i try to change autosizing for i have the problem described.
And to make it worse is that if i go back to the control i could change the autosizing values it has been reset so the values are the same as before the changes?.

To reproduce the problem, open or create a new a iOS solution/project with a storyboard file, open the storyboard file and add a View Controller, add a couple of Controls, for instance 3-4 Image Views.
Change the autosizing values of some of the controls and se if it keeps the values you are setting when you jump around the controls. Try to close and reopen the storyboard file and se if the changes you made earlier are the same or if the have like they do for me has been resetted.

In the storyboard document Use Auto Layout and Use Size Classes are unchecked.

I have attached a screen capture o the steps, unfortunately both screens are visible but you can se the problem in the left screen.

Hi Andreas.

Can you screencast it again?

I couldn't open your screencast :-(

Hint: You can use the free tool Jing https://www.techsmith.com/jing.html

In storyboard, clicking in any of the 6 autoresizing toggle the red color then 1 sec later it toggles back, not having any effect.

Also when Ctrl is pressed in designer to make constraints, one second later it is cancelled as if Ctrl key was released
