ADT Layout Editor -- What do warning triangles mean?

 Is there an explanation of the ADT layout editor UI some place? I
can't find anything on the Android web site about it. When I look at a
layout in the design view, there are a number of fields at the top
with labels like MCC, MNC, Lang, etc. I've noticed that I can change
the contents of these fields, such as orientation, and it has an
effect on the view. But a yellow warning triangle appears next to the
field I've changed and the next time I open this view I see the
unmodified field. For example, if I change to landscape orientation
the view goes back to default next time. Is there documentation some
place on what these fields mean and how they are supposed to be used?

2. Question for Android Dev team

First, let me just say I think Android is great and as a whole I'm
very happy Google has jumped into the OS world. I truly hope and
expect that in years to come Android will become a serious player in
the mobile OS world. Possibly the main player if the right choices are
made.

This brings me to my point...

How are these descisions being made?

company structure, one which is both positive in its creative freedom
and negative in its apparent rudderless desicsion making.

I'm an early adopter of Android and knew I would essentialy be a beta
tester.

Anyway I'm a positive lad and would like to offer a simple suggestion.

This 20% time is all very well and I do marvel at the amazing apps and
clever features that are deing developed by allowing people creative
freedom...however.

You're now in a heads up battle wether you like it or not, if Android
is to be the OS of choice it needs to be the best and it can only be
so if the development is lead by sensible descision making.

Case in point. Let's take the music player in Android. Now I'll be as
diplomatic as possible...it's crap. No argument is possible on this.
The staggering part is I just downloaded Sky Map and am stunned at the
complex tech we can all now enjoy...so how on Earth did anybody begin
working on such an egocentric and highly irrelevant app for the
greater volume of customers prior to somebody actually polishing the
UI on the music player or God forbid...adding a graphic equalizer.

Now this probably seems like a moan...I guess it is. Here's my idea.
Take everybody: and I mean everybody on all of the ecentric 20%
projects for just four weeks and get all of the core Android funtions
looking and functioning better than any of your competitors could ever
dream of.

Once this is done then start working on GPS linked accelerator
controlled temperture readings of Mars's underground alien water
systems.

It really is staggering that the simple stuff is not being sorted
quickly.

So please pass this post on to the right person, if that person is the
head of Google. Even better. These are simple choices that need to be
made asap, why it's not happening I can only imagine.

I'm certain I could do a better job...and will happily prove it. Try
me :)

Anyway, what has been done is fantastic. Keep it up.

Yours truly

PS please excuse the spelling mistakes as I wrote this on my G1 to
demonstrate another point. No spell check in here...crazy. We've got
Latitude but no spell check in most txt boxes.
