1/11 We just released #AndroidStudio 3.6 canary 10 -- and we added some neat tweaks to the design tools in those latest canaries that you may want to check! (and also, we would *love* to get feedback on ^_^)

2/11 Note that while canary releases are great to see the latest -- it's bleeding edge :) and you may encounter issues. If so, please file them on (under Android Studio > Design Tools), so that we can make sure to fix them!
3/11 Back to those new features -- First, we now allow you to very easily (and quickly!) switch the way you can edit your XML layouts. Simply toggle between the three buttons on the top-right of the panel :)

OK #AndroidDev we need to talk about saving and state in your apps using onSaveInstanceState and friends. Broadly speaking this mechanism is there to have users return to your app after an interruption in using it and carry on where they left off. 1/9
Behind the scenes, the app might have been killed by Android and whatever you've saved in onSavedInstanceState is returned to you to restore the app to the previous state, as if the was app kept running in the background. Smoke and mirrors basically. 2/9
The trick is to save just enough in the Bundle provided in onSavedInstanceState to make sure your app is able to resume where it left off. As a bonus, view state is already saved for you by the system. Saved state is also provided after config changes (like rotation). 3/9
