Switching to "Design" from "Source" tab removes all comments. It is probably caused by auto-xml tab inteding formatter (which is raised on tab switch).
Why do I even care about that? Designer doesn't work with new design libraries - workaround is testing parts of layouts (and commeting the rest).
Thanks for filing this @Przemyslaw! I was able to reproduce this issue using our latest 15.3 builds:
1. Open an Android XML layout in the designer.
2. Switch to "Source" view.
3. Add a comment.
4. Switch to "Designer" view. Wait for the view to render.
5. Switch back to the "Source" view. Note the comment is now gone.
