Separate WPF designer from xaml text editor
Separating designer from xaml text editor will allow use them on multiple monitors. Also it takes times to open a xaml file because the designer loads. Even if only xaml text editor is visible. I prefer to edit xaml manualy and don't need the designer. If i need it some day, i will open it explicitly

In order to only open the text editor without the designer you can already do the following:
- Use 'Open With ...' from the context menu on a .xaml file.
- Select the 'Source Code (Text) Editor'.
- Click 'Set as Default'
Whenever you do want the Designer view, just use 'Open With...' and select the Designer.
