I've got quite an annoying problem that I couldn't find a solution for, so far. It's about the AXML-Designer that always stops working after having rendered layouts for a few times. The Source-view of a layout works as expected and continues to do so, but when I switch to the Designer-view more often than not it just keeps loading and loading without ever again rendering the layout.
The only thing that gets the Designer working again, is closing and re-opening Visual Studio. But as the Designer then successfully renders a layout for only like 1 to 3 times before failing again, I find myself reopening Visual Studio every other minute.
There are no error messages I am aware of. Everything (Java, Visual Studio, Xamarin, Android SDK) should be up to date. Since I'm brand new to Xamarin, I cannot say when exactly the problem began happening.
