    • Unable to download the app!

      Hi,
      I read an article (FR) about the Ink to Code application and want to evaluate it. Unfortunately, if access to the Store is no problem (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/ink-to-code/9ndgplb2wg95?SilentAuth=1&wa=wsignin1.0), the MS Store application reports "Ink to Code is not available at the moment", without further explanation. Requirements seem OK with my machine (including touch screen)...

      Does anyone know how to download this app?

      Thanks in advance for any help!

          • Allow users to install on computers without integrated touchscreen

            I can't test Ink to Code - I only own an USB pen-tablet, no integrated touchscreen. Please fix that by changing requirements! Not all computers has embedded touchscreens ;)

            • Hand written text doesn't give you enough time to finish writting

              When you write a label the tool tries to register your ink too quickly.

              • Visual Basic Code Generation

                It's obviously a more VB tool. Why C# gets support first? Is Visual Basic deprecated now?

                • Generate Xamarin Forms layout - it's not much more effort than UWP XAML.

                  There is a missing opportunity to improve Forms generation. There are plenty of tools and startups generating code for native iOS and Android but nothing for Forms.

                    • Allow for Dummy data / images

                      When i do a wireframe demo it would be helpful to put in some dummy data/images so users can get more an idea of function. This is something I do with pen and paper today.

                        • Touchscreen without Pen Support

                          Add a toggle to be able to draw with touchscreen devices that do not have pen support. Similar to how "touch writing" is implemented in the ink workspace sketchpad.

                          • Properties Window

                            A property grid style UI piece that allows me to change the Height/Width/Left/Top/Text of a selected item.
                            The most irritating thing to change is the text. Adding a Sign Up button usually seems to make recognition happen on the space so its a Sign button, then the text changes to Up

                              • Be able to import XML from Android apps.

                                So i already have a code base with XML views in Android and it would be great to sketch up modifications and then export them back to android studio as their UI designer is painful especially in a session with users..

                                      It’s an interesting feature to consider. We have some ideas around how to generate project skeletons based on the UI generated files. We’ll post an update if this makes it into backlog planning.

                                      In the meantime, if this is something you’re interested in, upvote this idea. It helps us get an understanding of what’s important to you!

                                        - Sharing with others
                                        - Working on one laptop then picking up on another
                                        etc
