Blend 3 Sketch Flow New Features - Part II. In this article we will continue exploring new features.
 

Introduction

In Part I of this article series we have seen some of the new features of Blend 3 + SketchFlow in Silverlight 3. In this article we will continue exploring new features.


Switching Between Animation and Design Work Space


In Blend 3 Mix 09 Preview we had this same feature without letting the developer know about the shortcut key. Now we have it included inside the menu and the shortcut key for this is F6.



Switching Between Active View


Active view is a view which can be Designer View/Xaml View/ Split View. In Blend 3 Mix 09 Preview we didn't have a select option for this, but now we have a menu option to switch between active views. Using F11 we can switch it too.






Rendering Effects Turn On/Off

In Blend 3 + SketchFlow we have a panel in bottom left corner which shows as follows:



The first one is called the Rendering Effects. When you turn on this feature you can see the rendering effects. For example you want to use the Drop Shadow Effect for a Rectangle Shape. Using this button either On or Off you can preview the effect at design time.


Projection Feature is not hidden


In Blend 3 Mix 09 Preview we had this Projection feature in Transform but it was hidden. You have to expand the panel to see this. But now it is turned on for permanent.
