I suggest you ...

Option to open AXML files directly in code view by default.

In Visual Studio, I use keyboard shortcuts for everything. When I switch to the solution explorer and choose an axml file, I'd like to be able to have code view be the default state.

I've found that there's lag in opening the designer, and as a developer, I'd personally like to be able to do all of my work in code view.

Can we have an option to open directly in code view within Visual Studio?

        The AXML editor should have an option to open in code view first. When working on UI 99% time spend is on source view.

        Something like XAML editor has. Please look at editor settings XAML -> Miscellaneous and Default View "Always open documents in full XAML view"
