Microsoft Expression Design, version 1.0 is now available for a 60 days trial download, was one product I had big hopes for during the CTP cycle, but now it’s just a simple vector editor. Ok, I’ve said this before and this is not what this post is about…
If you now use Design to create images and drawings you have the excellent option of saving or exporting your file in numerous formats other than the Expression Design format; such as GIF, JPEG, PNG, Photoshop format etc. You can even export it to a PDF file, which is great for example when you have a sketch you would like to send to your business partner or friend.
But why are there no export to XPS?
Of course, you can use the Microsoft XPS Document Writer to print it out to an XPS file, but I feel like the option should be in the export dialog, at least to promote the XPS format. Has Adobe been there again threatening with law suit?
