Screenshot - Actual


   While inspecting apps (iOS and Android) the visual preview repeats views for each layer, making it very hard to see the actual hierarchy/tree of views. 

**Steps to Reproduce:**

   Inspect any app with multiple subviews.

**Actual Results:**

   See attached screenshot, which hopefully better explains this. 
   I've pointed some red arrows at views that are rendered visually at all layer snapshots, which is confusing on where they actually appear in the visual tree. 

**Expected Results:**

   I would expect each "layer" in the visual preview to only include a render of the view that is part of that layer.

This is well known. There's a lot we still need to do with visual inspection/3D view.
Comment 3 Bojan Rajkovic [MSFT] 2016-11-15 16:15:47 UTC
This is fixed for iOS with the latest builds, but not yet for Android.
Comment 4 Bojan Rajkovic [MSFT] 2016-11-21 14:32:19 UTC
This is definitely fixed in master builds of Workbooks/Inspector after 40f134e84fed65a962e7d8e849258831e2a6bf6e.
