Description Paul Hickman 2016-01-26 11:10:34 UTC
Whenever I open any XAML file (including the default hello world file from a new project) in Xamarin Studio I get the error:

Mehtod not found Xamarin.Designer.DesignerItem.SetChildren (System.Collections.Enumerable`1<DesignerItem>)

It works OK in Visual Studio 2015.

I have Xamarin Studio 5.1 (Build 6), Xamarin Android 6.0.0, Jdk 1.7.0_55 on Windows 8.1

@paul Do you still see this bug in the latest version of Xamarin tools?
Please attach logs from Xamarin Studio if you do.

You can find logs at Help/Open log directory
