I misplaced a </ScrollView> tag in the Source tab of the designer in MonoDevelop. I went back to the Content tab and it shows the error "The layout could not be loaded. Layout resource could not be found". I then closed the window and tried to open the axml by opening it with the Source Code Editor. I made the changes to fix the axml but then the Source Code Editor tab would not save. It gave me this exception:
System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.IO.IOException: The process cannot access the file 'Z:\Dropbox\MobiCover Projects\Hollard\Hollard\Hollard\Resources\Layout\.#Disclaimer.axml' because it is being used by another process.

So basically I then have to close and open MonoDevelop, make a change, hope it works, if it doesn't I have to close the designer, close MD, reopen MD, edit in Source Code Editor and try the designer. If it breaks the cycle starts from scratch.
Using MD 22.214.171.124 and MfA 4.2.3
I have the same Problem with MD 126.96.36.199 and MfA 4.2.4
This looks like it may be the same issue that I reported as bug: 7395. It's incredibly frustrating. I have to use the normal text editor.
