    Nice updates, working quite faster and looking good only for VS Mac.
    When it comes to Visual studio why designer screen showing right side instead of center. and controls is looking somewhat rough.
    Still i appreciate you people hard work.
    Thank you :smile:

    Does this update to the Designer support Asset Catalog Color Sets?

    The VS 2017 (15.5.4) Designer color picker does not seem to show the Color Set names like Xcode does. And if I manually edit the Storyboard with the named color, it does not display the color in the Designer.

    <color key="backgroundColor" name="splashBackground"/>

    Thanks for the comment! 15.5.4 is the latest version and would include the updates summarized here. I'll investigate your question about color assets and make sure we have an issue filed for anything that is not working. I'll post back here once I get the details.

    I was not able to select the color sets like you mentioned and log an issue on Bugzilla to track this.
