Here's an idea..

Create a Shape Designer app similar to Blend but MUCH more simple. The user can create basic shapes - Lines, Polygon, Rectangle, Ellipse, etc. This app then saves the path data to a meta-data file that my designer uses to load a toolbox.

Tn my resources I would have
    <Style x:Key="BaseShapeStyle"
        TargetType="Shape">
;Setter Property="Cursor" Value="Hand" />
        <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Left" />
        <Setter Property="VerticalAlignment" Value="Top" />
        <Setter Property="Stroke" Value="{Binding Stroke}" />
        <Setter Property="StrokeThickness" Value="{Binding StrokeThickness}" />
        <Setter Property="Fill" Value="{Binding Fill}" />

    </Style>

    <Style x:Key="EllipseStyle" 
        TargetType="{x:Type Ellipse}"
        BasedOn="{StaticResource BaseShapeStyle}">

        <Setter Property="Height" Value="{Binding Height}" />
        <Setter Property="Width" Value="{Binding Width}" />

    </Style>
Then in a user control I would have:
<Ellipse Style="{DynamicResource EllipseStyle}" 
            ToolTip="{Binding ElectrodeDisplayText}" 
            MouseLeftButtonDown="Ellipse_MouseLeftButtonDown" 
            MouseLeftButtonUp="Ellipse_MouseLeftButtonUp" 
            MouseMove="Ellipse_MouseMove"/>

So this way the basic shapes could all have their data saved and re-bound at runtime, and the UI pieces are very small.

By using the basic shapes and some grouping the user could create pretty much anything they wanted.

What do you think?
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
