9-patch images seems to not work in android preview?

Hey there,

working on an android app and i'm currently in gui/layout device hell...

I noticed that running the apps on the actual device unfortunately differs quite a lot from when i look at it in the "android preview" in Intellij. I checked, and it seems that the preview does not handle 9-patch images correctly, i.e. it does not handle them as such, from what i can see.

Is there any way to make this happen currently, and if not, is this something that will be addressed? It's very annoying when the preview window basically can't be used, as is my current situation.

Hello, mathias

Sorry for delay. Unfortunatelly I cannot reproduce it. Could you please create an issue in our tracker and attach your layout file (or sample project). Thanks!
