When I try to use the Source tab on the axml editor, intellisense works sometimes and sometimes doesn't. For example, in the pic that I attached, intellisense shows some suggestions like layerType or layoutDirection, but it doesn't show layout_marginBottom. As you can see, layout_marginTop and layout_gravity are marked as "not declared" (it does not recognize them). However, in the Designer tab, they appear (see pic on the right) and they work correctly when I run the application. In other projects, those attributes appear correctly in the intellisense suggestions.
I don't know if it's related but, by default, intellisense does not suggest values like "wrap_content" and "match_parent" in the Source tab. However, if I change those values in the Designer tabs (double clicking in the properties window) and then change to Source tab, the intellisense starts to suggest them.
This has never worked for me since 2013.
