The button for the code view on .axml files seems to have gone missing in 4.4.38 the update right before this one is where it started don't remember the version. Also the tabs for picking landscape and device size seems to be flaky also with it working on one devs machine but not another the are just empty button looking things.

The source view selector on the layout page does seem to have gone missing. This has regressed in the MFA beta 4.4.38.

Thanks for the report!

The designer tab issue is potentially a new issue. Any chance you could provide more info or a screencast with the 'flaky' behavior? 

There was a recent issue for users that upgraded to the latest Android SDK, but that should have been resolved with the 4.4.38 beta update. If possible please send the version information for the machine affected by the tab issue (or for both - full version info is always welcome!)

This bug will be fixed by the next 4.4 release, which could be as early as today. 

This bug was introduced by a patch to implement syntax highlighting in xml view - the fix for bug 5948. 

The solution to this regression was to revert that patch.
