    Can't help w/your issue, just a suggestion to consider using Android Studio to create layouts. For recyclerview or listview, it's not difficult to hard-code and data bind a list of data in Java or Kotlin, or even better a mock API, and that's always good supplemental knowledge for Xamarin skills.

    What's the version of your Visual Studio?
    The XAML previewer is still in early development, so it usually have such problem.
    I use Visual Studio Enterprise 2017 version 15.9.7, sometimes i have this problem, but when I switch the landscape and portrait tabs, the preview effect will come back.

    For example, when the preview have problem in Portrait mode, you can click the Landscape tab, if the preview display the layout normally, then you can change back to Portrait tab, normally, the preview will work.
