Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for being in touch with us and letting us know about some typos you’ve found in the WPF for Designers End-To-End Training (called Expression Blend Self Study Tutorial in the Microsoft Expression website).

We have reviewed the two reported issues and here is what we found. Please don’t hesitate to comment on this page if the solutions worked out for you and if you find any other issues along your way.

Thank you!
