Tip for creating master page using sharepoint designer

I haven't explored Sharepoint Designer that much in past, in-spite of the fact that its offers great webparts and editing functionality. On top of it , its free now. So while working on a new master page using SPD , I discovered 2 new things.

Tip 1:
SPD offers special toolbar for Master page for easy management

-- SPD > View Menu > Toolbars > Master Page

now its very easy to find any Content Placeholder

Tip 2:
Also another option SPD offers is to list all the Content Placeholders

-- SPD > Format > Master Page > Manage Content Region
