After moving layouts to a subfolder, double clicking on them in Xamarin Studio brings up the code editor, rather than the visual design editor. Moving them back to the layouts folder, and then this works again.

This works as expected, Xamarin Studio recognises the layout files source files when moved to the subfolders.

This behaviour is consistent with Android Studio
