Yay. I can ALT+Arrow my lines up and down again. Also the tab well is usable now. No more Control+Tab Control+Tab Control+Tab Control+Tab Control+Tab flurries to try to get back to a previous file. This is an excellent set of enhancements, Microsoft!
All the features are great except one related to Custom Document Well -> Color tabs by project.
When it colors the tabs, it creeps into the eyes. I wish instead of coloring the tab name completely, they could given an option to just add one colored dot or use the colored underline for the tab names. That would make it a five star tool for me to use.
I'm very surprised that these essential features are still not part of Visual Studio itself. Please provide a 2013 version, as VS2013 lacks the document well, the format/organize on save options, the ctrl-click to definition.
I love this extension, please please please make this available to VS 2013, I miss the tabs layout feature that put my tabs to the left of my project. That should be a default action of Visual Studios in my opinion.
I got this for the HTML Copy feature, but many other features interfere with Visual Studio in some way: * You can't tell which tab is active with the colored tabs. * The enhanced intellisense: - Is slower. - Does not save any keystrokes. It types the closing paren for you, but then you have to hit end then semicolon instead of close paren semicolon. That saves nothing. - When you call a method that takes an enum, the default intellisense selects that enum by default. The new intellisense does not. - Fixing mixed tabs and spaces is nice, but that pops up on files that are read only such as TFS diff windows, or files that are not checked out. Since there is already a menu option to do this, the bugs outweigh the benefits.
Overall, this is a nice testing ground for new Visual Studio features, but they need revising to be truly useful.
I cannot figure out how to turn off the automatic brace closing thing. I turned if off in the settings dialog but it is still doing it. It's really interfering with my normal way of coding. I like the other features, but I really wish I could turn off whatever it did to my brace/bracket settings.
Would be nice if there was an option for a double deep tab well in the Top or Bottom position (ala the VisualTabs extension). Helpful to see all the tabs with full names and having the tab well on the left or right wastes a bit of space.
Code prints fine with this extension disabled.
When enabled, page 10 gets shifted into the left margin so that the line numbers are cut off. This was not a printer mis-feed, it happens every time on just page 10.
Attempting to print just one page, instead of the entire document, results in an error being thrown. The popup says only "pageNumber"
Print selection DOES seem to work, so I am able to print the page that way, although then the page number is shown as 1.
Open XML Package Editor Power Tool for Visual Studio is NOT working as expected. Have installed, uninstalled, reinstalled Productivity Power Tools many times. Closed and reopened VS many times.
Yet, rather than showing the XML PARTS when a word document or excel spreadsheet is dragged into VS..... it simply opens WORD or EXCEL.
What needs to be turned on? All the documentation read seems to suggest simply dragging a file into VS will open the Open XML Package editor. Yet it is not happening....
How is this tool suppose to work?
Could not find file 'C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\Extensions\bpum0wxo.q45\ColorizedSignatureHelp.pkgdef'.
It seems to be able to do this when you open VS 2012 without a solution/project open however.. Still quite a perplexing issue, I think.
Is there a guide or examples for making the reg ex color assignments work for tabs? I cannot get anything to match.
Do the reg ex types have to go before the project types in the list? Is there a way to re-order the list?
