        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!

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • Combobox, Listbox support

              Add support for Combobox/Listbox - using a triangle and box size as an indicator for which to add. Love what you have so far - looking for to what's next! Thanks!

                • 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!

                  • Undo should remove unrecognized gestures

                    Currently undo (ctrl-z) only undoes recognized gestures. If you draw some ink and it is not recognized, pressing undo should remove that ink but instead removes the last recognized element you added and leaves the new ink in place.

                    1. Create an Image with the box + X gesture
                    2. Draw a squiggle that will not be recognized.
                    3. Press Ctrl-Z

                    Expected: Squiggle is removed.
                    Actual: Image is removed.

                          • 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.

                                  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.

                                    • Pages with Arrows

                                      Instead of the top-level construct being a View, make it a Page. Then, allow arrows to be drawn from buttons on a page, which would code-gen a very basic stack nav.
