Following on from nice touch #1…
I disliked the way old versions of Blend relied on something as a subtle as a few pixels of colour to tell you something relatively important.
although admittedly this doesn’t appear to be universal across all properties.
[Really I’m just testing out twitterfeed which has failed for me… but I needed something to post on :-)]
I’m just skimming through some blend tips by Mike from 2010 and spotted a nice touch in Blend for Visual Studio 2012 I hadn’t noticed before (amongst no doubt hundreds of improvements :-))
When working with grids and rows (or columns) you now get a lovely visual indicator with in place editing, rather than needing to visit properties.
