Dragging the viewflipper to the screen
The viewflipper is not working correctly in the designer.
If you try and drag it to the layout it will hang Visual studio with a visible element stuck on the screen.
If you add it to the axml page then switch back to the designer it will never load.
I have updated to the latest android build event tried the alpha channel with no luck.
Updated all of the android SDK packages with no change.
The project will still compile and work fine on a device, but not being able to visually see the layout in the designer makes the process of creating it long and tedious.

Visual element stays on top of all windows.
Here is a screen shot showing that the visual element left on the screen when trying to drag a Viewflipper onto the screen stays on top of all windows.
I was able to roll back to 4.1.2 and the problem does not exist there.
This should be fixed in the new version of XamarinVS, to make sure could you attach your IDE logs to this bug? Thanks.
If the issue does still exist with the latest builds in the Alpha channel we will need the logs, as described in the previous comment, to dig into the problem.
