Faster XAML editing in VS2010

If you are working with the XAML Editor in VS2010 you’ve maybe realized that it’s much better than with VS2008.

You can even be faster if you change the editor from default XAML Editor to “Source Code (Text) Editor”.

You not only have VS IntelliSense, XML collapsing and the XAML context menu support, also you have full ReSharper support!

How to change the default editor:

  1. Right-click on a XAML file in the Solution Explorer
  2. Select "Open With..."
  3. Select "Source Code (Text) Editor"
  4. Click on "Set as Default"
  5. Click OK
  6. You're done!


With SHIFT + F7 you can change from “Source Code (Text) Editor” to the default XAML editor with its split view, navigator, etc.
