Add a way to zoom in to or automatically pan to the selected view controller. I wouldn't be at all surprised if something like this is already on a to-do list somewhere.
One option would be to implement either or both of the following workflows from Xcode Interface Builder.
When navigating large storyboards, the following workflow can be helpful in Xcode Interface Builder:
1. Zoom out to get an overview of the the whole storyboard.
2. Double click the view controller you want to work on.
3. The canvas zooms in to show the view controller at "actual size".
Another related workflow is:
1. Zoom to "Actual Size".
2. Select a view controller from the "Document Outline".
3. The canvas pans to show the selected view controller.
For this second workflow to be comfortable in Xamarin Studio (and Visual Studio), the "Document Outline" would probably also need an enhancement to add the "Scene" groupings that Xcode Interface Builder has.
Jeremie, this is something that should probably be rolled into your current work
Though if you don't get around to adding it, just reassign back to me when the new work is complete.
The second workflow has been implemented for a while. It was done as part of the native surface port.
Sounds good to me! I'll set the target milestone to Cycle 6 just for bookkeeping since I do indeed see that the canvas panning feature is working in the XMA preview builds of XVS and in the Cycle 6 Preview builds of Xamarin Studio.
