    I know. The + and - things are gone. All of my code is unfolded and it makes it hard to keep things organized!

    This issue will be fixed once we upgrade to MonoDevelop 5.9

    Here are some details on how to use Xamarin Studio 5.9 with Unity today.

    The easies workaround I've found is, after you save, to hit backspace and undo: this will not alter the file, since you do something and undo it, and will re-enable folding.

    Sure, you will still have lost the _current_ folding, but at least you can re-fold everything.

    I had that bug also sometimes, but for me it helped when I switched to another script (in another tab of MonoDevelop) and switched back. That did the job. Normaly the folding disapeared when I saved the script.

    Posted about this on Unity Answers before the issue tracker was made public. There's a bit of discussion and a temporary workaround, but this issue is hugely frustrating as I'm a compulsive saver and have to re-fold my code every time I do so.

    Had this happen to me too, regardless of what settings for folding are set. It seems to happen when I have an open section, since obviously I'm still working on it, but it gets confused upon a save - until I fix it up and hit save again or something.

    Yep, that's why I upgraded Unity, but kept Mono 2.8 =)
