I bought this extension mainly for its feature annotating endings of methods. I find it really helpful.
After I returned from vacation, I was surprised that I found extension locked because license key was no longer working. Upon retry, it is accepted but the extension keeps its locked state after VS restart (not registered, 30 days left - but this counter is not decreasing). No reinstalls help. Too bad I needed to write it into this review to get author's attention because I sent 2 help requests (via direct mail and later via web form) and I'm left without a reply for more than THREE weeks.
I like this add on. Even purchased it. The editor view extender really helps with loooong method/property/class blocks. There needs to be a way to provide this same capability for long "blocks" in general such as "if" and "while" blocks. That would make this the perfect add on.
Great plugin! Michael is it possible to remove the space that Visual Studio inserts at the bottom of the viewport right after your code?
Basically the issue is the you scroll to the very bottom of a file in visual studio, only the last line is visible at the very top of the screen. I think the last page of code should fill your screen like it does in every other text editor. That would be a great feature for your plugin if you could address that.

I don't use all the features of this extension, since some of them already exist in one of my other addons, but this is a very nice extension with some very useful features for navigating your code at a glance and having structure pop out at you.
This is a great extension and use it constantly. One question/feature I would like answered or addressed...Is it possible to adjust the transparancy of the class/interface/method icons? I wish I could see them better.
During the 1+ year free beta period, the "FREE BETA" text was written in caps lock, big font, in a green-bordered boxed paragraph that appeared 3 times on the product description page here on the Visual Studio Gallery. Usually betas are free, and that *never* implies that the final product will be free.
Also, during the more than 1 year free beta, you had the product at your disposal to use it in your day-by-day work. If, during that time, it brought you less than 40 bucks in added value then I must admit it was purely decorative for you, and I am ready to take the blame and accept your review/rating as deserved. Otherwise... well, no comment.
