This download contains a suite of tools for creating, editing and visualizing metadata that is underpinned by a code framework, which makes it easier to define domain-specific schemas for metadata, and then to construct a custom graphical designer hosted in Visual Studio. In addition to overall improvements of existing functionality, the May 2005 CTP release adds support for Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2 and the ability to create complex shapes similar to Visual Studio 2005 Class Designer shapes.   

PowerToys for the Visual Studio 2005 Class Designer and Distributed System Designers

Class Designer Power Toys for Visual Studio 2005

We’ve published a set of set of add-ins which augments existing functionality in the Visual Studio 2005 Class Designer,  Here is the link to the download site.

This only works with the Beta 2 build.  It has some cool features like Pan/Zoom Window, MSDN Help on System Types, Dongles for easy creation of associations and inhertiance lines etc.  You can find the list of all the cool features enabled by the add-ins here.  There is also an add-in for the Distributed System Designer (available from the same download).

Cheers,

Ramesh Rajagopal.
