I only use the designer to make sure everything is lining up - I still type the xaml by hand. Like anything else you're just starting out with, you adapt as you learn where the quirks are.

BTW, I don't have problems with constant width/height. I make copious use of row and column definitions set to either Auto or *, and almost always let the controls inside the grid determine their own widths/heights. The hardest thing to deal with is how font sizes can affect everything, especially if you have a user control object that is supposed to inherit the parent element's font properties.

I prefer WPF to Winforms, if for no other reason than the data binding and enforcement of almost fanatical MVVM use. I did this app in a week and a half.

I'll try to un-workify it and post an article.

Finally, if you're at all interested, I found that the best way to learn WPF is to duplicate one of your old WinForms apps as a WPF app. It will not only help you learn WPF, but can also serve to show you where your winforms app could have been made better.
