There is an issue when working on .axml files in Xamarin.Android projects in Visual Studio only.
When switching from the "Design" tab to the "Source" tab, the source view resets to the top of the file and the original cursor position is lost. The bug also occurs on all subsequent switches from the designer view to the source code view.
## Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new Xamarin.Android project in Visual Studio.
2. Edit the .axml source for the project by hand so that there’s enough text to necessitate a scroll bar (the default button can be copied over multiple times to achieve this if necessary).
3. Scroll down and position the cursor at the bottom of the source code.
4. Switch from the source code view to the designer view.
5. Switch back to the source code view.
## Actual Results:
The scroll position of the "Source" tab resets to the top of the file; the cursor position resets to the bottom of the file.
## Expected Results:
Neither the scroll position nor the cursor position should change. Both should remain at the locations chosen during step 3. Xamarin Studio has the correct behavior (tested on version 5.3 (build 439)).
