Description Andrew 2013-12-21 12:54:36 UTC
The AXML is attached.

Steps for VS2010:
1) open in it AXML visual editor
2) Open properties window (F4)
3) See "textView1" item in the controls combobox

Screenshot is attached.
If you try the same in Xamari Studio, you'll be able to see the item in layout (top-left corner of the layout view). It's selectable though absent in "Document Outline" window.

I have checked this issue with the latest stable build XVS 3.11.666 and observed that this issue still exist with this build. I observed that imaginary textView1 TextView is displayed in Visual AXML Editor, while it's absent in the AXML file source.

I have tested and found that this issue *does* occur in the current Alpha channel on Mac. As such, I am moving this bug from "Visual Studio - Android Designer" to "Android - Android Designer".
