  1. Make Blend a stand-alone application to work with VS Code and .NET Core SDK

    Hello,

    This a combination of ideas and this might not be the best forum.

    With the release of XAML Standard, it would be really awesome if the .Net Core SDK could include a XAML application template. eg, dotnet new xaml

    To facilitate this, I think it would be great if Blend was a stand-alone application.

    The Use Cases I am thinking of are students for who the full Visual Studio is too much and also people who develop under Linux.

    Thanks

          • Migration of Test Cases, Test Suites & Bugs from Old TFS server to New TFS Server

              • ¡Regresen los proyectos de modelado y diagramas de UML en Visual Studio 2017!

                ¡Qué decepcionante! Pues resulta que en Visual Studio 2017, ¡han eliminado los diseñadores UML!, y -dizque-, (1) según telemetría, muy pocos clientes (usuarios) lo utilizaban, y (2) porque (el equipito ingenioso de Visual Studio) prefieren invertir en el núcleo de Visual Studio "importantes" recursos de ingeniería. Vamos señores, así como en la construcción civil, así también es indispensable la arquitectura en la construcción de software, y, hoy por hoy, y a todos los que elaboramos documentos de arquitectura de software, UML es indispensable. Que a muchos les guste meterse de frente al código, todo improvisado, con código horrible y desordenado,…

                • VS2017:Use the installation "nickname" when generating the user profile folder

                  Currently the folder is like 15.0_2fa2a8cf which is really hard to match against the vs edition.

                  • Notifications to the Users/Stake Holders when a UC/Bug is assigned/closed/resolved.

                    Notifications from the TFS to the user when a Use Case/Bug is assigned. Also, notifications to the stake holders when a UC/Bug is closed/resolved.

                    I do not have any information about the UC/Bug until my manger informs that a uc/bug is been assigned. After closing/resolving the UC/Bug, inreturn i need to inform stake holders that the UC/Bug is closed/resolved. This is a tedious job.

                        'BYTE' is used in the same file in several declarations, and only one instance of 'byte' which gives compilation error for ISO C++ 17 option

                          • Want Blend to be part of WPF desktop development

                            For Visual Studio 2017, if I install the Desktop Development workload (for WPF) then I don't get Blend. I have to install the UWP workload to get Blend, though I'm unlikely to use UWP.

                                  • offer some kind of Blend training for designers

                                    I'm technical, but can't even evaluate this tool properly without investing days. the learning curve is steeper than it needs to be. info on the web is sparse, fragmented, broken, old, targeted at engineers. books, same. courses? nothing current. there is no built-in workspace overview even. there are no sample projects i can find. hurdle after hurdle; even Behaviors were a separate install. I'm not familiar with Visual Studio, so that's another fundamental layer of confusion.
