  • Thanks for your reactions.

    The main reason is that I made my current website with Blend (Silverlight) and familiar with the UI. No problem to start in Visual studio 2013, start the HTML project, add a HTML page but I’m not able to switch to Blend. If I open the project direct out of Blend I can open the project but unfortunately can’t really work with the Blend tools.

    Hope you can advise!

    I found the solution

    Bit desperate so I used the repair function, lucky me, it works, all the HTML are now available within Blend. Thank you guys

  • I'm not a Blend expert, but I'm not sure what you would use Blend for in an HTML app. You can use Visual Studio to develop.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

    Agree,  I would use Visual Studio to start a project, if I need to design something, I'd like to open it in Blend later...

  • I've been informed that HTML wasn't included in the Community edition. I don't know why.
