I've found that VS for Mac briefly flashes when it redraws the UI if you switch between files where one file is in View -> Code layout and the other is View -> Design layout. This flash is annoying and I would like to find a way to eliminate it. In my case I don't actually have any differences in the layouts, so I would be happy to always use the same layout, but I see cases where even if I switch the layout to Code it automatically switches back to Design the next time I view that file. I've also found that even if I delete the Design layout it is automatically created again.
Does anyone else have this problem and any suggestions on how to avoid it?
