When user right click on any widget in android designer, It provide 'Properties' and 'Design Outline' on Xamarin Studio. While using VS we are not getting these two options.

We are still getting this issue with XVS 3.11.666. In VS, we are not getting these two options 'Properties' and 'Design Outline'. However with XS we are getting this options.

I have tested and found that this issue *does* occur in the current Alpha channel on Mac. As such, I am moving this bug from "Visual Studio - Android Designer" to "Android - Android Designer". 

One additional odd thing I noticed is is that once I reproduced the bug, I could not get the properties to display for *any* widget, even if I left-clicked them and they worked before. This only stopped when I completely closed the Android Designer and then reopened it.
