Using Visual Studio 2013 Update 3 and Xamarin plug-in 3.9.483.0.
Images added to a project are no longer listed in project resources window and setting ImageView's src manually results an empty ImageView into designer.
At runtime everything is ok.
Issue has been raised here http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/36103/visual-studio-axml-editor-no-longer-shows-resources#latest and it's a blocking issue (can't design w/o preview)
Possibly a duplicate of bug 28247 (coincidentally filed at almost precisely the same time).
I double-checked the behavior of bug 28247 on XamarinVS 3.9.547.0 (20fd2f0), and that bug appears to be working correctly, so if the bug on this page (bug 28248) is still working incorrectly using the latest stable versions, then a next good step would be to add a "Steps to reproduce" section on this bug report.
Ideally, if you can add all of the following, that would be perfect:
a. Attach a zipped up project that demonstrates the issue.
b. Write a short numbered list of the steps to follow to reproduce the issue using the zipped up project.
c. Attach a short screencast (for example using https://www.techsmith.com/jing.html) that shows the problem.
Thanks in advance!
I confirm that it still present on my installation (latest stable available)
To reproduce it:
1-Open Visual Studio 2013 Update 4
2-Create a new blank Android app
3-Add a png file to drawable folder
4-Open VS designer and drag an ImageView
5-Select ImageView's src property from property window
6-The Resources window doesn't list the image you just added
7-Save the project and open it in Xamarin Studio
8-Open the designer, select ImageView and src using property window
9-The image is property listed
10-Associate the image to ImageView, you can now see it in the designer
11-Save the project and reopen it in Visual Studio
12-Open the designer, ImageView is not rendered
13-Use Document outline to see that ImageView is still there
Here's the screencast: http://screencast.com/t/HJCzSw6ggBO

Thanks! Setting the status back to NEW to check if the QA team can reproduce using the steps provided in comment 3.
This should be fixed in 3.10+ to the best of my knowledge. Kent says it's not reproducible in 3.11, so the stuff we're currently shipping seems to be fine.
