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.

Causes adding of items to sharepoint features to fail with a vague error. More details here: https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/646396/object-reference-not-set-to-an-instance-of-an-object-when-trying-to-add-a-sharepoint-project-item#details
The "Custom Document Well" is pretty neat, given the fact, it adds specific colors to document tabs, that are present in multiple projects.
If you're open for suggestions, I would recommend adding the same color to the project icon in the Solution Explorer. That way, you'll be typing something in a document and at the same time be able to peek into the Solution Explorer and be positive about, which project this document belongs to.
Nice feature set. There needs to be a way to turn off the "Quick Find" feature though. The VS2010 version allows it to be toggled...why the heck was this option removed in the VS2012 version?
Or at the very least, please dismiss the Quick Find panel when the user hits Enter. It drives me crazy when I hit CTRL+F, <search string>, ENTER, and the focus is still in the Quick Find panel. It seems that I need to manually close the panel (via the X button) or click in the text editor window.
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?
+1 This feature was a HUGE productivity booster. Even with the improvements of 2012 (and my addition of ReSharper) I still don't feel as productive if I can't quickly see the members with the interactive tooltips. Please consider this as a feature for 2012/2013.
