Must have Expression Add-ins
Josh Holmes recently posted a list of Three Essential Expression Add-ins. I didn’t even know there were such things, although I can’t say I’m surprised. One of the Add-ins is XAML Intellisense for Blend, which I was recenlty told by a friend is supposed to be part of Blend 3. Another one is called “Colorful Expression”, which provides access to Color Swatches available on the Internet. I don’t know if they have it yet, but wouldn’t it be great to be able to export an entire swatch to a Resource Dictionary?
Apparently the Blend Add-in utility is not very user friendly, something I hope changes with Blend 3, but Josh does a great job of walking us through the nasty bits. I can’t wait to try it myself.
