    Hi James, I do have a quick question regarding the Base Device dropdown: where is this populated from? On my machine I only have a limited list, missing device profiles like Nexus 5x, Pixel series, etc. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks!

    @Claudiu: Hey there, they are populated from our list that we create. Ensure that you have the latest version of Visual Studio as we have added more into the mix lately.

    My list of base devices is very limited(only Nexus flavours) on a Mac laptop. The current build is 7.7.3.

    Reinstallation didn't fix the problem. This machine had a full list of base devices on the builds 7.6.X.
    But something(I cannot specify the exact event, but suspect deletion one of the system images) caused the list to loose everythnig but Nexus flavours while still on build 7.6.9. One of the existing cofigurations with the base device of Pixel XL has the base of None now.

    Since update and then even a complete reinstallation of Visual Studio for Mac to the latest version 7.7.3(build 43) has not solved the problem, troubleshooting steps would be highly appreciated.

    This problem was reported by others and myself(with screenshots and full configuration info) here: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/379311/missing-base-device-in-xamarin-android-device-mana.html
