This issue corresponds with upgrading to Xamarin.Android 7.3 and Visual Studio for Mac. Intellisense no longer works properly in axml files. Create a TextView, then try typing "android:text=". When you get to the ":", the intellisense tooltip will close and it will leave you with "android:tag:". The intellisense needs to be fixed right away, it's unusable right now in axml files, which we work in A LOT as Android developers.
This ticket can't be ignored, intellisense is completely broken in .axml files now. This is a huge issue for Android developers and needs to be fixed ASAP.
