Same bug here. java AndroidDesigner failed to load after switching to alpha in VS2012 with message "Connection to the layout renderer failed". So no designer availible at all (even axml part).
Workaround: i replaced AndroidDesigner.jar from VS2012 extension folder to Xamarin Studio AndroidDesigner.jar.
