Laurent Bugnion (GalaSoft) Diary of a Code Trotter

I stand corrected, the "locks" are still there. Following yesterday's post, I got a comment indicating me the cause of the confusion: Somehow, when I installed the September CTP of Blend 2, my settings were changed (probably by my own doing, in fact), and I unchecked the "Use grid layout mode" checkbox in the "Artboard / Layout" section of the options. This causes the grids to be displayed as a kind of canvas, on which the controls can be positioned in an absolute manner, instead of "fixing" them in a column/row position. Actually, what Blend does is calculate the column, row, columnspan, rowspan and margins to create the positioning which the designer wants to achieve.
