    I'd love to see some improvements to the designer.

    initial thoughts would be:

    * easier setting of tab order (there has to be a better way than exiting the tool and editing the .spb file in notepad to ensure things are added to the form in the right order and/or parent)

    * easier control of parent (more visual)

    * ability to compose on a larger canvas - for instance if I have 6 panels I want to be able to swap in and out (oh for a tabbed panel control for smartphone) I have to keep shuffling things around

    it works okay, but I can't help feeling there's a lot more it could do to make my life easier (and make building nice looking apps easier!)

    that kinda works, but it's just as clunky! there's no visual ordering or way of quickly checking. For my needed using notepad worked as well (and I can be sure where things are)

    still need to look into things like having a larger canvas to allow multiple full screen panels to be shown (unless a tabbed panel is going to turn up soon for smartphone!) etc
