Designer: Images in ListView

Hi, I am trying to use the Visual Studio for Mac designer (iOS, V7.3.2) and I have it working so far that it renders a listView with data.

I have some testdata that I use for design time that includes images. Images are loaded via a UriImageResource. Yesterday everything worked fine and my images showed up in the designer. This morning I opened the same xaml file in the designer and the list displayed data but the images didn't show up any more. I did a rebuild and everything but no images. I also checked the VS log files, but I don't see any errors. Any ideas on how to solve this?

    If you visit the image URL from your browser, Do the images display? Are they on Https or http?

    Yes the images are there and it is https. All of a sudden my images reappeared in the designer while working on a different view, which is awesome but no idea why. If I find the reason I will post it here.

    => maybe because I broke the view while I was editing it (I saw the red cross in the top of the designer) and it reloaded when I was done editing. I will give this another try as soon as the images disappear again.

    Today my images are not showing again, no matter what I do: edit and save view, edit different view, clear test data except for 1 row: the data is updated but the image still doesn't show, I also tried images from a different source, restart VS, restart Mac.

    None of my views are displaying images and I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work today other than the day of the week :| I hope it works again tomorrow... Does anybody from Xamarin know how this works?
