Description Adam Patridge [MSFT] 2018-02-26 18:39:18 UTC
## Steps

0. [prereq] Make Mac machine inaccessible so you aren't connected on solution load
1. File>New iOS app (something with a storyboard)
2. Make Mac machine accessible
3. Debug app, connecting to a Mac as you go (you still get a debug failure this first connection)
4. Debug app again successfully (with connection pre-established)
4. Open storyboard file

## Expected

Should open the storyboard with the currently-connected Mac.

## Actual

Despite running app successfully on the remote/remoted simulator, the first load of a storyboard will result in a "Something went wrong" error saying the "Designer requires an active connection to a Mac server."

## Workaround

Closing and reopening the storyboard file will let it load successfully on subsequent attempts.
