I just installed this and now I've noticed that class objects like DateTime, Nullable, defined structs and others are now in normal (black) color rather than the color used for classes and other objects (light blue/green).
I found that turning OFF Colorized Parameter Help in the Tools | Options, Productivity Power Tools returns to the default IntelliSense colors.
Can this be fixed soon please as it's very annoying to have it as is right now but at least we can turn it off. Thank you.
I have been having a problem with my visual studio hanging as soon as I try to start a graphics debugging session (alt+f5), but I finally went ahead and attached a debugger to see what's up.
The issue appears to be that the visual studio graphics debugging engine performs operations on the UI, spawns windows, moves stuff, etc.. and when the Document well is involved, it appears to hang.
The full call stack is too large to paste here, but I posted it here:
Here are some relevant calls on the stack
CustomDocWell.dll!Microsoft.CustomDocWell.Slider.Controls.SliderDocumentTabPanel.MeasureOverride(System.Windows.Size panelConstraint) + 0x8a bytes
PresentationFramework.dll!System.Windows.FrameworkElement.MeasureCore(System.Windows.Size availableSize) + 0x1cc bytes
PresentationCore.dll!System.Windows.UIElement.Measure(System.Windows.Size availableSize) + 0x1cc bytes
PresentationCore.dll!System.Windows.ContextLayoutManager.UpdateLayout() + 0x1a1 bytes
PresentationCore.dll!System.Windows.UIElement.UpdateLayout() + 0x14 bytes
VsGraphicsDebuggerPkg.dll!Microsoft.VsPixPkg.VsPixFrameBufferViewer.ThumbListScrollViewer_SizeChanged(object sender, System.Windows.SizeChangedEventArgs e) + 0x17 bytes
The weird thing is that this does not happen 100% of the time, but once it happens, it will persist until I give up. Then it'll randomly be fixed next time I decide to give it a try.. Likely something about the state of my Visual Studio UI?
Anyway I've confirmed that disabling the document wells option fixes the issue (and renabling it brings the issue back). Would be great to see this fixed as I'm a big fan of the enhanced document well, but I'll have to go without it for now.
Ps. Using the latest version (11.0.60403.0) on VS 2012 with update 1 and 2 installed.
My team has StyleCop enabled with requirements that the 'System' using directives be placed above all others (Rule SA1208).
Is there a way to have the 'sort usings' functionality sort in this way? If not, please consider adding it.
hi folks - I've installed the Productivity Power Tools. I can access many of the new features but the new Solution Navigator is nowhere to be seen. Do I need to do something to enable this functionality?
The new solution explorer in vs 2012 is way more behind the solution navigator included in the power tools. you cant expand members, like methods, and cant navigate to the local variables, which was extremely useful in a long method. The only improvement is the preview selected items.
It would be nice to see the solution navigator back in the tools
In VS2010 with PPT, when I pinned tabs I got (in effect) two rows of tabs.
I see that no longer works in VS2012 / PPT.
And I wanted (and requested, very nicely) MULTIPLE tab rows.
While I use a portrait mode monitor and have less width to work with (enough for about five file tabs), I'm sure other developers open lots of files and would like to see multiple tab rows, too.
I got a very nice REPLY when I requested this for PPT / 2010, but I'm sad to say now there's only a single row even when pinned.
Please consider supporting multiple tab rows in the tab well on PPT / 2012.
Thanks again for considering this again.
