Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2016-03-16 21:02:33 UTC
## Description

When opening a layout, the layout occasionally renders incorrectly. Top half of layout is cut off at the top of the document window, no way to scroll to reveal entire layout. 



## Steps to reproduce

1. Open Visual Studio and create a new Android Project.

2. Open the Main.axml file in the Android Designer. 

3. Add a Button to the layout by dragging from the toolbox.

4. Close and re-open the layout.

Expected result: Layout will render correctly with the new button.

Actual result: Top half of layout is off the top of the document window and you can't scroll it fully into view.
