Blend Feng Shui (Keyboard Shortcuts)

I am having a poopy experience somewhere in the combination of Visual Studio 2008, ReSharper 4.5 and XAML editing. Lots of crashing and slowness. So, I have been using Microsoft Expression Blend to edit XAML controls. I find myself performing the following keyboard shortcuts almost every time I open Blend and/or a XAML file:

  • F4 - Hide Panels (sort of like Full Screen)

XAML file:
  • F11 (twice) - Cycle Code/Designer view to split screen
  • [CTRL]+0 - Sets the Designer zoom to Fit Screen and, more importantly, centers the control in the Designer pane
