Paste as XAML/SVG

The Paste as XAML and Paste as SVG features enable you to paste a vector drawing copied from a vector editing tool (for example, Microsoft Visio, Microsoft PowerPoint, or Adobe Illustrator) inside the XAML or HTML source code. It is inserted as an editable and resizable vector drawing.

  1. Select a drawing or a part of it in a vector editor and copy it:

    Clipboard_PasteAsXAML_PPT

  2. Switch to a XAML editor in Visual Studio, place the caret where you want to insert the drawing and press Ctrl + V:

    Clipboard_PasteAsXAML_VS

Note

You can disable this feature by using the Quick Setup options page.
