Snapshot of the designer locked up

You add a TextView to the Layout and double click it to set the text,
at that point the designer freezes and there is no way to get out of it
When you look at the generated XML (because you can still switch) the TextView is not there

See the attached image

The only option at this point is to close the file and open it again

Are you using Visual Studio or Xamarin Studio?

"Sorry for the late reply, this ended up in spam"

At that point I was using Visual Studio 2012
