Xamarin log file
Android designer is not opening for any layout.
It start happening suddenly.
If I take a look into log file, it seams it is contacting 18.104.22.168:443 and cannot get respond.
I tried to install different version of Xamarin, but problem remains.
I found out that this has nothing to do with logged error.
If your attrs.xml, styles.xml, dimens.xml etc. is empty, android designer won't open any layout.
These empty one xml-s were not yet translated and resided in values-hr folder.
It would be grate if you corrected that bug.
Just to understand the proportion of problem, I lost 10 hours trying to find the problem, and it would be good that no one else faces the same issue in the future.
