  • User-1030575685 posted


    I cannot find any documentation for the new HTML Editor (the one lacking Design View) in Visual Studio 2013 on MSDN Library.

    The only documentation for "HTML Designer" seems to be here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/y9d53c8d(v=vs.100).aspx

    And it is for Visual Studio 2010 and talks about Design View.

    All I can find is Hanselman's video talking about the new features and a bunch of blog posts complaing about missing design view.  Where is the actual documentation for how it works and how to use it?

    Hi tomballard,

    I think the document may not update to the latest. In the VS2013, it add the Html (Web Forms) Editor, so we could use HTML Editor or HTML (Web Forms) Editor to open the page. (In the VS 2012, it just use HTML Editor)

    For your requirement, please refer to these steps below:

    1. Right click a page (E.g. Htmlpage1.html)
    2. Select Open with…
    3. Select HTML (Web Forms) Editor


    Best Regards
