When I resize the layout viewer screen, the text seem to overwrite each other.
The layout viewer is really slow and unstable.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback.

This was a feature we prioritized, and has been fixed.

Please check the latest version of Xamarin Studio and see that this issue is resolved.

If you are still having issues with the action bar displaying in a way that is strange or undesired, please reopen this bug, or file a new bug with new screenshots/screencasts (as what is linked here is now out of date).
