Issue opening orchestrations in Visual Studio 2010

This was something that had cropped up now and then when designing BizTalk orchestrations in Visual Studio 2010...

Once the orchestration had been opened in the "source" view (to edit the raw XML), from that point onwards Visual Studio 2010 would open the orchestration in text view all the time... The workaround was to use "Open With" and choose the designer...

It wasn't until I came across this post by Randal van Splunteren that I discovered a permanent way to fix the issue: Edit the .btproj file in Notepad and remove the <SubType>Designer</SubType> tags associated with each orchestration that suffers from the issue.

Thanks Randal!
