Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2016-01-05 23:10:41 UTC
## Description

After updating to the current Alpha channel build for Xamarin for VS, there is no longer a Source tab shown in the Android Designer to allow viewing of the .axml source. Issue occurs in both VS 2015 and VS 2013. 

## Regression status

Regression in current Alpha build of Xamarin for VS

GOOD: Xamarin version 4.0.0.1717 (Stable channel)
BAD: Xamarin version 4.0.1.60 (Alpha channel)


## Steps to reproduce

1. Make sure you are on the Alpha channel XVS version 4.0.1.60

2. Create a new, blank Android app project from template. 

3. Open the Main.axml file from the Resources/layout folder in Android Designer

Expected result: Will see a "Source" and a "Designer" tab at the bottom of the document. 

Actual result: Tabs are missing.
