Screen shot of xamarin studio in the android layout editor
I recently updated to the (currently) latest stable versions and I noticed a strange change in the android layout editor.
I have the 'Outline', the 'Toolbox' and the "Property' pads set up to my liking and although they are still there, their width seem to have been limited. For the outline and toolbox it is not such a huge problem but for the proerty it is, since the 'Behavior' tab is almost not clickable and some buttons(e.g for the Background property) disappeared (color picker & resource picker).[See attached screenshot]
how to reproduce:
Open an android layout file (axml) and dock the mentioned pads to the sides and toggle their width.
do some work, run the project, etc.
Toggle width again.
after just opening, it allows some increasing in the width, but very limited
after some work there is no way to change the width (even making it narrower doesn't work)
to set the width to my own liking or at the very least have access to all functionalities of the pad.
