    What is it you are trying to do, exactly?

    As I answered in the issue you link, all you need to do is add the Xamarin.Forms NuGet package to an Android workbook, and an activity is set up for you.

    Here's a simple example that should work fine in Workbooks 1.3 Alpha 1 (if you have 1.2, it might work, or you can create a similar workbook yourself).

    I just discovered a bug in 1.3 Alpha 1 that prevents direct use of any types defined in Mono.Android.dll on Windows.

    If you have any Android-specific code to write, and you are on Windows, you should stick with 1.2.2. Mac is fine.

    @SandyArmstrong Great, exactly what I need:

    Using the Xamarin Workbook for Xamarin Forms UI/Layout concept snippets using Android Emulator

    using either codes or XAML (see below)

    ref: 1
    ref: 2
    ref: 3

    .
