Suspect so. Most enterprise projects have dedicated UX which provides wireframes, measurements
and high-fidelity designs to be implemented.

Another question about this, is the Design View not used by specifically devs so much because
the layout work is actually being done with another tool, by another person, and the devs
are getting the wireframes as a start?  Is it more of a workflow issue I wonder?

I would agree that design view is great for a very new beginner but for someone who has got
at least 2+ years of RIA experience, s/he wouldn't want to get into the business of dragging
and dropping controls just like how it was done back in VB days.... one would want to understand
and learn/memorize different properties (along with their respective possible
vales) to get his/her dirty with deep down details.

In the past 4+ years, I haven't come across anyone who loved this feature religiously. And,
need not to mention that design view is super slow if you try to make FB read an existing

No offense to anyone and with all respect to all, personally I think 'squeeze is not worth
the juice'....
