Description Pierce Boggan [MSFT] 2017-06-23 18:46:20 UTC
# Steps to reproduce
1. File -> New -> Blank Android App.
2. Open Resources/layout/Main.axml.

# Expected behavior
Android designer loads, and I can switch between Designer and Source tabs while designer agent loads (which can be up to ten seconds).

# Actual behavior
Android designer loads, but I cannot change tabs between Designer and Source. This isn't a great experience, as I may not use the designer (only edit in source view), but must wait for it to load to edit my axml.
