The Android SDK version is too old. I added a check in the designer. If the SDK is too old it will now show a proper error message.

Today I have checked this issue with following builds:

X.S 4.0.13(build 39)
X.Android 4.8.3-3
Mono 3.2.3
Mountain Lion 10.8.4(12E55)
After updating Android AndroidSDK to Rev- 22.2, We are successfully able to open android layout.

Changing the status to Verified.
