Video: SketchFlow in 90 seconds, with Jon Harris

You are pressed for time, but you are dying to know what SketchFlow is? The thought of watching an hour of demo video, like presented here, makes you look frantically at your watch?

The solutions is here, exclusively at electricbeach.org: Jon Harris presents SketchFlow in just 90 seconds in this video, and does so with a friendly British accent to boot. It does not get any shorter (or better) than that.

Let me show you how these are done. Also, I’m going to give you a sneak preview on some other more advanced stuff you can do with path layout that my colleague Joanna Mason is going to blog about in detail soon…

Blend 4: About Path Layout, Sidebar – More About ListBox Than You Ever Wanted To Know

In the previous installment of this series on path layout, I explained how to add a rotation offset to an element in the list box while keeping well-fitting highlights. I also promised that I’d explain in greater depth what is going on.
