Screen shot showing complete hidden designer window.
Under windows 7 operating system, I installed X-Studio. I created a new GTK# project. Double clicking the MainWindow.cs is opening the main window source code tab perfectly and when I am switching to the Designer tab, the GUI window design layout is properly displaying for the first time and when I again switch to Source tab and then clicking the designer tab again, hides the GUI window design layout permanently for that session.
How often this is happening?
Almost all the time.
Opening any other tab or file in the solution and then again clicking on the mainwindow designer tab displays the GUI designer.
I am not able to reproduce this issue with XS 4.2.1(Build 1)
For new GTK# application, Designer tab displays GUI successfully.
Windows 7 and 8
XS 4.2.1(Build 1)
Could you please check this issue with XS 4.2.1(Build 1)?
If you are still able to reproduce this issue then please add an screencast and environment details in the bug.

The process you are using is wrong Saurabh. Why you are closing the project. Switch back and forth any open designer window in Source / Designer tabs and see what happens.
Here is the screen cast:
I am also getting same issue. Designer tab displays GUI only first time, if user switches to Source tab and reopen Designer tab again then GUI disappears.
XS 4.2.1(Build 1)/4.2.2(Build 2)
