Hello to everyone I have a problem with the intellisense for Xamarin.Forms, unfortunately it does not want to work. On the Internet, for Visual Studio 2015 I found several solutions to the problem, while for VS2017 no. Does any of you know how to solve this problem with Intellisense?

Thank you very much.

    Could you elaborate the issue? What doesn't work?

    The problem is that when I try to write XAML code for the UI, the intellisense drop-down menu does not appear to suggest tags.

    @ClaudioMaggio.4482, could you please share your version information in Help -> About Microsoft Visual Studio? It's working fine for me over here on the Visual Studio 15.3 preview.

    I have same proeblem: Visual Studio 2017: 15.2 (26430.13).

    Intellisense works sometimes. For example when I create a new project but after closin VS and load the Solution again the intellisense dies again. I managed to delete the Android project and then the Intellisense started. But not in all projects.

    I have tried to open the xaml-files in different "programs" by right-click and open with. Doesn´t help.

    It´s really frustrating.
