Description Neal 2012-07-16 10:53:39 UTC

I have my actual axml files named such as "MyCustomLayout.axml" yet in the xml for a layout everything needs to be lower case.  So if I have an include statement it points to this layout as @layout/mycustomlayout.  The MfA designer will flag this as an error and unable to load the referenced layout because of what appears to be a case-sensitivity issue.  I have since renamed all my layouts to be all lower case to avoid this.

This is a known limitation in the android SDK. Resource references are case sensitive.
