3. layout edit is visible in "Content" tab.
4. No option to save the layout file is available.
5. close layout file window. No prompt to save is shown

I'm also having something similar
- Open a solution
- Open a layout.
- Changing the layout visually doesn't enable the save button.
Pressing Ctrl + S doesn't save either and no warning of not saving. So closing the layout and reopening looses all changes!
If I go to the source and make any change the save is enabled.
Please mark as HIGH priority.
Are you seeing this problem with MonoDevelop or Visual Studio?
Visual Studio 2010
I see this mainly in MonoDevelop!
The MonoDevelop issue is fixed.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 7477 ***
Today, with the latest builds:
And now the issue does not exists. As the user is successfully able to save the layout edits.
Hence, closing this issue.
