Testcase

Android designer does not update the layout values from Dimensions.xml, we have to build the project to update the Designer view in Visual studio.
Where in Xamarin Studio the changes in Dimensions.xml files are updated instantaneously in designer.

#Steps to reproduce.

1. Open the attached Testcase in Visual Studio
2. Open the Main.axml file in the designer
3. Open the Dimensions.xml, change the `header_height` value and save the file
4. Switch to Main.axml and note that the button did not pick up the values from Dimensions files.

# Expected result 
The Button should pick up and update its layout from `header_height` value from Dimensions files
Note that Xamarin Studio works as expected.

I have checked this issue and able to reproduce the reported behavior with the help of steps and test case. When I change the `header_height` value in Dimensions.xml and save the file then main.axml does not updated automatically.

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this report! I attempted to reproduce this issue based on the bug description with the latest Visual Studio 2017 Preview version 15.3, and I was unable to hit the problem. If this issue is still occurring for you, please reopen this report and attach a reproduction, ideally starting with a new template project and then adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
