    Hi. I have vs 2017 enterprise 15.8 and xamarin>4 installed in windows 7 ult.
    everytime I create a new cross-platform project, the dependencies of the app has yellow triangle and lots of errors.
    whole thing is because of wrong version in xamarin.forms loaded in Nuget section of Dependencies, which is version 3.1.0... and the solution is to update the xamarin.forms package to version 3.4.0... in "manage nuget packages for solution".
    after updating the solution runs well.
    but everytime I create a new cp project I have to do the process of updating xamarin.forms package, (now offline).
    Is there anyway to adopt vs to load the correct version at time of creation of preject?

    I dont understand why should we report some basic and core feature problems. Can you get better testers or do better testing instead? i mean since VS2019 released as stable version following issues were encountered.
    - Build times are slower than VS 2017 in debug and release mode
    - Android archiving is not possible at all
    - Proguard settings changed and not working since latest update 16.1.1
    - VS 2019 mac and windows are inconsistent. VS mac is way behind windows version and if you use both parallel, you have problems.

    Why cant you just find out before you release to the end customers?

    This way of reporting problem is also very inefficient. I dont see anything being resolved here. I have reported several bugs and none of them has fixed status. I have really detailed all with logs and screenshots even some with screen records. very basic bugs indeed. I think that you should have a GitHub page and issues better for bugs. I can see xamarin issues are better followed on GitHub but we have more frustration with VS. especially VS Mac.
