Project and Monitor screenshot of top views viewgroup

Tested on Android 6.0 VS Emulator

Reproduction Steps:

1. Open application
2. Observe teal area is the header background color
3. The Text "Test@..." is in the bottom viewgroup while the label "Subtitle" is in the above.

Inside the attached project is a reproduction project and an image showing the bounds of the top viewgroup.

Using your project the result is the same on both and 2.4.0 on an Android 6.0/API23 emulator. Is there something I'm missing? I will attach two screenshots.

As we haven't heard back for over a month, we will close this for the time being. Please reopen when there is more information which can be provided, assuming this is still an issue as of the latest 2.5.0 stable release of Forms. Thanks!
