Description Andrew Way 2014-01-28 18:18:31 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

0.       Create one portrait  (/layout/Seconds.axml) and one landscape layout (/layout-land/Seconds.axml)

1.       Double-click on “Resources/layout/Seconds.axml”.

2.       Change to “Source” mode editing.  This is a very important step.  The bug doesn’t happened without it.

3.       Double-click on “Resources/layout-land/Seconds.axml”.

4.       Notice that the layout is displayed in landscape mode in the “Content” editor but using the layout from “Resources/layout/Seconds.axml”.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

XS 4.2.4 (build 14)
X.Android 4.12.0

After following steps mention in bug description we are not getting this issue.
Now the landscape file appears in landscape mode.

Hence, closing this issue.
