I work in some very large solutions in Blend and often have many many pages open. I’ve been spoiled in Visual Studio with the ability to right-click on one of the open tab items and “Close All But This” like this screen shot shows:
Blend currently (3 or 4) doesn’t support this feature like it does in Visual Studio. Fortunately there is still a way to accomplish this by accessing a menu item pick under the File menu. In this screen shot we see the tab item you want to remain open while closing everything else:
Selecting Close All Documents now will close everything but MainPage.xaml. If you had 20 pages open currently this would save you a fair amount of time 😉
Although many of you might have already known this, it was a pleasant surprise to me and thought I’d pass it on.
