This was fixed by https://github.com/xamarin/designer/commit/4a334700cf7778055935c9f450cbaabce9b6d96e which landed several months ago. This should already be shipping as part of the 15.5 release cycle, which means things should work with the latest Visual Studio preview release.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 58919 ***
https://github.com/xamarin/designer/commit/4a334700cf7778055935c9f450cbaabce9b6d96e goes to 404
Thanks for the info. Will wait when 15.5 is available then.
