this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
When using <View> in an axml file, visual studio will not provide intellisense for anything after it in the layout file.
This also occurs for <include>.
Basically, using anything that is not specified by the schema causes intellisense to break.
After this workaround default opening of axml files with Designer is gone.
I have found that it might not be XSD problem and locations of schemas, but rather VS API for loading file.
After accidentally introducing error in axml I have double-clicked on error in Error window. Axml opened in XML source editor, but w/o intellisense, subsequent double-click opened file in xml source editor but WITH intellisense.
As we've added several improvements to our build system and deploying/debugging mechanism since the bug was reported, I'm resolving it tentatively as Fixed.
That said, if you're still facing this issue with current bits, please feel free to reopen the bug.
