Description Tomasz Cielecki 2013-03-24 16:09:52 UTC
It is not possible to nest elements in the designer if another type of element is present inside. It is easier to explain with an example so here it goes:

Take a RelativeLayout and drag it onto the phone. Drag another one and put it into the previous RelativeLayout. This works great.

However if you take a RelativeLayout, drag a Button into it, then want to drag a new RelativeLayout inside the previous RelativeLayout, it just pops either above or below the first RelativeLayout.
