Description John Miller [MSFT] 2014-03-31 18:55:54 UTC
Current Alpha 4.12.3 and SDK Tools 22.6.1 gives Disconnected from Layout Renderer error when viewing a layout file in the designer.
Comment 2 Lluis Sanchez 2014-04-03 07:30:13 UTC
This alpha release doesn't include the fix to support SDK Tools 22.6.1. The fix will be included in the next release.

"Distinguished customer" advises that this process to 'roll back' to an earlier SDK fixes the issue for now:

1. Download http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/tools_r22.6-macosx.zip, Extract it
2. Tools => Open Android SDK Command Prompt
3. mv tools tools-busted && mv ~/Downloads/tools .
4. Restart Xamarin Studio
