9.1i EDK - XPS overwrites changes made in external text editor


MHS file is overwritten, and changes are not saved in 9.1i EDK: 


1. The mhs file is opened within XPS with no project open. 

2. Open a project in XPS. 

3. XPS does not add the mhs editor as one of the views to change the mhs file. 

4. Make changes to the mhs file within the project. 

5. Changes in the text editor are overwritten in the mhs file. 


When is this problem going to be fixed, and is there a way to work around this issue?


If you always open the MHS file after you have opened a project, then your changes to the MHS will not be overwritten. 


This problem has been fixed in the latest EDK 9.1i Service Pack, available at: 

The first service pack containing the fix is EDK 9.1i Service Pack 1.
