Newbie question on XAML editing in Xamarin Studio on Mac RRS feed

    Hi All, I am creating a Xamarin.forms app on my Mac, using Xamarin studio.

    Its a bit tedious entering the XAML by hand, is there a GUI designer or Visualiser? This will allow me to get a feel for what my screens look like without having to deploy to an emulator?

    Sorry if dumb question.

    Currently there is no visual editor for XAML (like Expression Blend). It's all by hand for now. But, there is a preview pane in the Alpha channel currently, which allows you to view your changes live as you make them. https://macapi.xamarin.com/guides/xamarin-forms/xaml/xaml-previewer/
