Description Miha Markic 2012-06-09 06:58:34 UTC
Open a layout designer in Visual Studio. Change something on it. Then perform undo latest change source control operation (or get latest or something that would change the layout designer).

I get this message box during the operation:

Designer Unavailable

The Android designer can only open layout files in an open project, because it requires access to project's resource files.

File  does not appear to be in an open project.

I get this same error with Visual Studio 2012.  I'm not using source control however, but I do recall clicking "undo" repeatedly in the axml file prior to the problem occurring.

Fixed. The fix will be included in Xamarin Studio 4.1.13 and Xamarin.Android 4.10.1.
