Lock XAML Visual Designer from editing
This suggestion is migrated to Developer Community. Please use below link to view the current status.
When I am working on a XAML view, I prefer to edit through the text editor, not the visual designer. This causes some grief if I accidentally click and move and element in the designer and mess up all my hand-coded layouts. However, I still want to see the live updates in the visual designer.
Please add a way for me to lock down the edit capability of the XAML visual designer so that accidental mouse clicks don't mess up hand-coded layouts. Continue to allow clicking in the visual designer to move to an element in the xaml text editor.
