Whenever I open up a layout, it does not render controls. It will show the controls rough approximate sizes on the screen when clicked, but the actual controls are not displayed.
This is not the "connection to layout render failed" issue as detailed here: http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/32365/connection-to-the-layout-renderer-failed-in-xs-5-7-and-xamarinvs-3-9#latest.
This occurs in both Xamarin Studio and Visual Studio 2013.

I have tried to reproduce this issue but unable to reproduce it. To reproduce this issue I have followed below steps:
1. Open XS or VS.
2. Create Android Application.
3. Open layout.
4. Drag any widgets to layout from toolbar.
Widgets are getting displayed correctly.
Screencast for XS: http://www.screencast.com/t/p0qyXbzHxZ
Screencast for VS: http://www.screencast.com/t/zBKe2CCKn9
Could you please provide us a sample app, ide log and android-tool log. So we can reproduce this issue at our end.
For XS you will get logs via Help >Open Log Directory.
And for VS, please Zip Xamarin log via Help > Zip Xamarin Logs.

I just updated to the latest release of Xamarin Studio and updated JAVA. User Interfaces are now rendering properly.
