Description Peter Collins 2013-11-11 16:05:48 UTC
I'm unable to open an .axml file with the designer if it is anywhere other than Resources/layout, though I'm not sure how much we care about this scenario if at all.

Comment 1 Lluis Sanchez 2013-11-12 03:23:53 UTC
This scenario is explicitly unsupported. Layouts must be in a layout resource directory for the designer to work.
