screenshot showing the orange bar and the bordeaux red preview
When, for instance, I want to select a background color for a Linearlayout i select the layout in my axml content view and use the properties pad > Style tab > Background property to select a colour.
Clicking on the magnify glass opens up the MonoDevelop Project Resources screen that shows the drawables and defined colors. When one selects a color it shows a Preview on the right side but unfortunately this color is different (ie: orange looks bordeaux red,etc etc) from what the color actually is.
When the color is selected and the contentview shows the axml layout the color is correctly displayed but I think the preview showing the wrong color still is a bug?
Fixed in master.
