More SharePoint Designer Configuration Options

So far, we've looked at a number of configuration options including SharePoint Designer settings and administrative features such as permissions. Early on in the chapter, we touched on the SharePoint Designer backstage, and we accessed the backstage Options to modify the SharePoint Designer 2010 ribbon and QAT. This section reviews the remainder of the configuration options available via the backstage, including setting SharePoint Designer editing preferences.

But first, you modify the Recent Sites listing, which by default does not include a built-in option for modifying the number of sites displayed.

Modifying the Recent Sites List in the SharePoint Designer Backstage

Depending on how frequently you use SharePoint Designer 2010 and the number of sites you access, eventually you might find that the Recent Sites listing on the SharePoint Designer 2010 backstage, shown in Figure 7.72, becomes cluttered.

Unfortunately, there is no built-in tool for adjusting the contents of this list. However, one workaround is to manually remove items by using the following instructions:

  1. On your computer, browse to the following location:
    %SystemDrive%\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache
  2. Remove the contents of the WebsiteCache folder to clear out the Recent Sites list in the SharePoint Designer 2010 backstage.

General Options for Working with SharePoint Designer

General options include configuration settings to adjust some of the common editing features in SharePoint Designer, such as the DOCTYPE and CSS Schema that you validate against when authoring SharePoint master pages, along with IntelliSense options when working in Code view. See Chapter 11, "Understanding SharePoint Designer Editing Features."
