My opinion is right for me, but it may not be right for you. But your opinion would be useful.

The Windows Form Designer, from the VB days to Visual Studio 2019 and .NET Framework 4.8 is an amazingly productive tool. The time it takes to build a window like I want, create to the code skeleton for events, etc. is drastically reduced from hand-coding. Thus, in a given amount of project time, I now have more time to spend improving the project, doing more testing, or even adding features. Those things would not be possible without the Designer.

Now, consider XAML Forms and HTML pages for Blazor. No designer. Even a Windows Forms designer in .NET Core 3.0 is missing, for now. Adding those designers would have the same effects for those environments and productivity that the Forms Designer did for VB and Visual Studio.

Microsoft's team of millennials and Gen-Z'ers appear to not have the depth of experience, or concepts of value engineering, to know why a GUI designer is so valuable.

That said, what are your opinions of how important it is to have Xamarin XAML and Blazor HTML designers on a par with the .NET Framework Windows Forms Designer?
