# Steps to reproduce
1. Open an Android layout.
2. Add a text-based control (like a TextView).
3. Double-click the control in the visual designer to edit the text.

# Expected behavior
Cursor is added to the end of the text. If I have "Hello World", cursor should be added to directly after the 'd' character.

# Actual behavior
Cursor is added to the beginning of the text:

For reference - In Visual Studio for Mac Preview 7.1, the current behavior for this is to highlight all text entered.
