ScrollView not working properly in design mode

When I designing android layout in design mode in Visual Studio 2015, I can't scrolling inside scrollview. The blue positioning bar will appear in right side of layout if I select some view inside of scrollview. But if I move this blue positioning bar up or down its nothing happen in layout design. In Xamarin Studio everything works fine in designing layout.

My questions are:
1- Is this problem issue of Visual Studio or Xamarin plugin?
2- What I have to do to solve this problem?

  • This doesn't really answer the question, but I can inform you that I had the same issue, just with the designer in Xamarin Studio, when running on OSX. Running the designer on Windows, the scroller worked perfectly.

    I'm bumping this because I'm running into the same issue. I'm using Xamarin.Android with VS 2015 Professional, and I have a ScrollView with a LinearLayout embedded in it. The little blue scroll bar in the VS Designer view is there and I can move it, but the contents in the preview don't move. I tried opening the same solution with Xamarin Studio and the scroll view preview worked fine, so I'm assuming this is a bug in Xamarin + VS

    Relevant information:

    Visual Studio Professional - 14.0.24720.00 Update 1
    Xamarin - (dcea9c1)
    Xamarin.Android - (e98e962)
    Xamarin Studio - 5.10.2 (build 56)

    I can also confirm this. Prior to Same as GeorgeKotula

    ScrollView xmlns:android=""
    !!Widgets here!!!

    Blue scroll bar visible and able to drag but contents doesn't change. It's hard to edit/debug some of my projects.
