With SharePoint Designer 2010, you can build complete, rich, reusable, process-centric applications on the SharePoint platform that integrate external data. SharePoint Designer 2010 makes it possible to build composite applications by configuring or designing components such as data sources, lists, content types, views, forms, workflows, and external content types — all without writing any code. Further, SharePoint Designer 2010 now provides tools for all of the important components in a SharePoint solution: “You don’t have to leave SharePoint Designer to build your solution.”

Redesigned user interface

The user interface of SharePoint Designer 2010 has been completely redesigned to “put the ‘SharePoint’ into SharePoint Designer.” Now all of the important components in a site or solution — lists and content types, views and forms, workflows, data sources and external content types, page layouts and master pages — are easy to find. And it’s easy to see how components are related to each other — for example, when you view the summary page for a list, you can easily see all of that list’s views, forms, workflows, content types, and custom actions.

File tab
When you start SharePoint Designer 2010, the new File tab makes it easy to get started. Here you can open existing sites or create new sites. You can also open pages or sites that you have recently worked with, and add new components such as lists and workflows to the current site

Site summary page
Every site has a summary page where you can change settings or manage various aspects of your site. For example, you can now manage permissions directly from SharePoint Designer 2010. And like every summary page, the site summary page shows related components — for example, here you can easily view and navigate to all subsites in the current site

Navigation pane
The Navigation pane makes it easy to find and navigate to all of the important components in a site that you use to build a solution. Whether you’re modeling your data and need to work with lists and content types, or whether you’re designing workflows to add the logic that “glues” your solution together, you can find the components you need in the Navigation pane

Gallery pages
Gallery pages make it easy to find and edit any of the important components of your solution. In the Navigation pane, clicking any component will show you a gallery of all such components in the current site — for example, you can easily see all workflows or lists in the site. On a gallery page, just click any component to edit it.

Summary pages
A summary page gives you an all-up view or portal into all of the pieces that make up a component. For example, the summary page for a content type shows you the forms and workflows for that content type. The summary page for a list shows you the views, forms, content type, custom actions, and workflows for that list. From a summary page, you can edit the settings for that component — such as the name or permissions — or you can edit the component itself.

List & content type editors
With SharePoint Designer 2010, you can edit all of the important components that comprise a SharePoint solution — including lists and content types. You use lists and content types to model your data, so these components are often at the core of a solution. And now SharePoint Designer 2010 provides a full-page editor for both lists and content types. You can quickly edit the columns and settings of a list or content type in one place, without having to navigate between pages as in the browser

Navigation bar
As you navigate through the components in a site, the Navigation bar can help you understand where you are in the site and how the various components are related to each other. The Navigation bar displays breadcrumbs that show where you are in the site hierarchy. There are also Forward and Backward buttons, a Recent Pages drop-down menu that shows your recent navigation history, and drop-down menus for each node that show all of the children for any page or component in the hierarchy

The Ribbon will make you more efficient and productive in SharePoint Designer 2010 because the Ribbon surfaces all of the important features in the right context for what you’re working on. For example, if you’re working with a Data View in the page editor, contextual tabs appear on the Ribbon that provide all of the tools and options for working with Data Views: conditional formatting, filtering and sorting, adding or removing columns, asynchronous updates, and more are available with just a single click.

Zoom to Contents
A SharePoint page can have a lot going on with content placeholders, Web Part zones, controls, and other page elements. When you’re working with a SharePoint page, often you want to focus on a single element, such as PlaceHolderMain or a Web Part zone or a Data View. Now you can select any of those elements, and then click Zoom to Contents on the Ribbon. After you zoom to contents, both Design view and Code view will show only the element that you want to work with, so you won’t be distracted by the visual clutter or code on the rest of the page

All Files view
The new user interface in SharePoint Designer 2010 focuses on surfacing all of the important components in a SharePoint solution. If you used the Folder List in previous versions of SharePoint Designer, you can still have the experience of working with the files and folders in a site by using All Files view.
