Description Allie Miller 2014-03-31 13:29:33 UTC
*Reported on behalf of a user*

In the Android Designer in VS2013, the styling of TextView is modified. However, in XS, this does not occur. Under the properties window in VS2013, it is reflected that the TextView has been ‘demoted’ to a MockView

Full test project reproducing this case attached to this bug report.

Versioning Information:
VS 2013 SP1
GTK# 2.12.25
Xamarin.Android: 4.12.2.1
Xamarin Studio: 4.2.3.60
