I've taken a look at Expression Design before, but with the new release, I decided to take another look. In the Expression Design (Dec 2006 CTP), there is a workspace zoom, which allows you to display all toolbars at 50-150% their normal size. I think this is a great feature, which speaks to the benefit of vector graphics; however, I don't like the fact that all toolbars use the same zoom level. There are three toolbars in this release: Property Inspector, Layers, and the Toolbox (which, I believe is called something else). The standard size for the Toolbox is too big, in my opinion, so of course I want to dial it down as much as possible. The only problem with this, is that the Property Inspector and Layers toolbars are both affected by this change as well. So, I either have to deal with a larger than desired Toolbox or Property Inspector and Layers toolbars that are too small to read. Obviously, I stick with the former, since it's more palpable; but I'd really like a work-around for this.
