VS 2015 Xamarin Android Designer is unresponsive RRS feed

  • Question

  • User142548 posted

    I just started with a blank Android Project and when I create a new view and switch back and forth with designer/source, VS become unresponsive around 30 seconds. It is also an issue switching between Activity and .axml files.

    I am using Intel I7 processor with 16gb ram. I have no performance issues with other apps or other Visual Studio 2015 applications.

    Is this a known issue? Is there any workaround for this?

    Can you verify you are using the latest versions and if yes, Java JDK 1.8 64 bit is required for the designer.
