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 issuetracker.google.com (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 :)

7/11 We also improved and streamlined a lot the resource picker panel, taking advantage of the new #ResourceManager functionalities added in #AndroidStudio 3.4

8/11 Another improvement: in the #NavigationEditor we now use the same attribute panel as the #LayoutEditor, giving you a lot of new functionalities (surfacing warnings, etc.)

9/11 Finally, we also added a new Visualization panel that let you quickly see how your layout behaves with different form factors -- very handy :)

10/11 Here's a video of the new Visualization panel in action -- note also the new color picker -- and see how changes are reflected in real time!

11/11 That's all for now!

Please try #AndroidStudio 3.6 canary 10 -- we hope to release all those features in the final 3.6 stable release.

We'd love to hear from you -- file bugs or feature requests on issuetracker.google.com !
