I see this on certain views in the Designer.  It says "Show Error" but doesn't tell me what it is.  Clicking on the red "Show Error" blob does nothing.

I marked this one as a duplicate since I'm pretty sure you are hitting the same issue but to be safe would you mind including your logs (in Visual Studio it's in the Help > Xamarin > Zip logs menu)?
