I have noticed extremely poor loading times in the iOS designer within Visual Studio 2015. I have tested this thoroughly and ruled out network issues. A sample of our developers reveals load times for the Xamarin designer consistently between 1 and 2 minutes!
Moreover, many report the Mac Agent randomly losing connection whilst loading storyboards...

Please can you improve the performance of the designer and load times generally!
Xamarin is a key component of our business strategy and it would be a shame to lose it owing to excessive loss of man hours waiting for designer loads.
