Why does Visual Studio keep un-including the Assets.xcassets folder (and/or its contents)?

I'm having an issue with Xamarin.iOS projects in Visual Studio 2019. Any time I:

  • Restart VS,
  • Unload and reload a project, or
  • Change an iOS project

Some or all of the Assets.xcassets folder contents become unincluded. Sometimes, git diff shows that a new node is created underneath the asset nodes: <Visible>false</Visible>. Other times, no pending change is recorded at all.

As you might guess, this is EXTREMELY annoying and is making Xamarin unusable for future iOS development.

Is there any fix for this?

    @LandLu, you are correct. I thought that leaving the assets folder unincluded made Application Loader throw errors, but it does not. So, I guess no problems with leaving the folders unincluded.
