Visual Studio XAML Grid Settings

    Question

  • How do I configure the grid in the XAML designer in the Visual Studio 2011 preview? Metro Style design guidelines stipulate that everything be aligned to a 20 by 20 pixel grid, but Visual Studio seems not to use this by default. That's a curious decision in itself, but I can't actually see any place to configure this designer in Visual Studio's Options dialog. What am I missing?

  • Unfortunately, this configurability is not exposed in VS at this point of time.

  • I don't suppose there's an undocumented registry key we can tweak?
