    • Can we have the preview in a dedicated window?

      I'd love the possibility to run the preview in a dedicated window in addition to the current preview. That would allow to test in a more realistic environment and allow to show a design to customers and end users without the distracting (for them) other parts of the XAML Studio UI

        • Showing ThemeResource in intellisense

          When modifying controls' appearances, it is cool to show suggestion of built-in ThemeResource, that can save a lot of time.

          • Allow to use reusable components like Templated Control / User Control and Styles

            I would like to be able to define building blocks from which I can then quickly create pages in XAML Studio.

              Thanks for sending us your suggestion. This is definitely something I’ve thought about and would love to add support for. It’s going to need a bit or work to get right though, especially for more than just XAML components and if/how any code components could go along with them.

              We definitely want to add some support, so it’s on our backlog, but it’s going to be a while still before we get there.
