I have been a Microsoft fanboy for my entire programming career, but 2012-2013 may be your (Microsoft's) downfall. Everything is pushed out without QA - Win8, Office2013, VS2012, and now this update. Have you ever heard of saving configuration settings??? Now I've got to go waste an hour to figure out what my settings should be. AGAIN.
Enhanced scrollbar is one of the most useful elements in the package! It is awesome. Another really useful feature is to move line up/down. However, I'm missing an extremely handy one - Interactive tooltips. Please bring it back. I gave 4 just because it missing the interactive tooltips.
Overall, I like this extension. I am currently having an issue with it removing coloring to my user types (DateTime for example) everytime I restart VisualStudio. Other than that though, it has seemed stable and helpful.
**** After following the Q&A, my freezing issues did seem to be associated with the custom document well, and so switched this off, which at the moment seems to be the only glitch. Hoping they will fix this soon, which will raise it to 5 star rating for me.
* This was a great set of extensions that really improved and enhanced development in VS 2010. But the 2012 version is so buggy. It constantly renders the 2012 ide unusable... it constantly freezes and requires restarting VS 2012 so much that you end up disabling it.
Rating: ***** Endlich wieder in Farbe drucken. 8-)
Rating: ** Leider wird das Syntax-Highlighting in VS2012 Ultimate (mehrere Installationen auf verschiedenen OS [Win7-Entp. ,Win8-Entp.]) reproduzierbar verändert. Die integrierten-Typen wie Int32, Int64, Double, Boolean usw. werden im Code-Editor schwarz dargestellt.
Workaround: Tools > Optionen > "Productivity Power Tools" > "Colorized Parameter Help" auf Off behebt den Fehler.
great to have this (mostly for Ctrl-Click to definition) but missing interactive tooltips :(. The thing I used them for the most was probably "Implemented By" for interfaces - is there some built-in VS2012 feature I'm "supposed to be" using for this?
+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.
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?
