I’m having far too much fun converting things from Illustrator to XAML.
This opens up a whole new set of avenues for me to explore. As powerful as Blend and Design are, Illustrator has just plainly been around far longer and has more functionality at this point in time to do certain things.
The exporter exports to silverlight or wpf compatibility, btw.
For text, it “technically” isn’t supported, however, if you convert your text to points, you then can export the points with each character being its own individual path of nodes being as editable in Blend as XAML as they could be done in Illustrator.
The real power of this is when you have something realy crazy that you have done with various warp and masking tools – exporting to XAML = drools.
This is going to be fun.
