Sub Word Navigation in Visual Studio is the single best thing since sliced bread! You sir, are a Legend! Please let me purchase for you a beverage (or three) of your choosing.

Thank you very much!

  • Glitch in selected text after "duplicate selection"?
    1 Posts | Last post January 17, 2014
    • Hi, great extension. I had Duplicate Selection as a Macro in VS2008, but since there are no macros in VS2012...
      So far it's working great, but I think I've found a little glitch. Imagine I have the following code:
      with the selection spanning from "5" to the end of the next line. If I duplicate the selection, I get:
      which is correct. But the selected text goes from the "e" in the second line to the end of the third line. I would expect it to go from the 5 in the second line to the end of the third line (basically, the same text as was originally selected).
  • Subword deletion

    • Hey, awesome extension!
      Is it possible to add functionality to delete subwords, something like Delete(Previous|Next)Subword, so it's possible to map Ctrl+(Backspace|Delete) to them and delete just the subword instead of the whole word?
  • No longer works on Visual Studio 2012

    • Tom_HH posted a reply in a different discussion about VSTricks no longer working on Visual Studio 2012.
      I've just re-built v1.5 and uploaded it.  This one should work correctly in Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2013.  Getting an extension to work with multiple versions of Visual Studio is pretty tricky.  I had to drop support for Visual Studio 2010 because I no longer have that version installed on my dev machine.  If anyone really wants this to work on 2010 again, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
    • Awesome! Thank you very much! Apologies for replying in the other post, much appreciated sir, cheers! :)
  • Left vs Right
    4 Posts | Last post December 04, 2013
    • I noticed a difference between moving left or right on underscored lines.
      example: object_name
      Moving right skips over underscore.
      Moving left considers the underscores a subword.
      I would prefer the underscores to be skipped as it is moving right for left as well. Regardless is this intentional? Great features by the way. Thanks.
    • You're right, and that was not intentional. I've fixed this in version 1.5 (just uploaded).  Thanks for pointing it out!
    • I am just trying to use VSTricks 1.5 with VS 2012 and it no longer seems to be working :( Any ideas?
    • Probably would have been better to start a new discussion rather than reply to this one.
      It looks like my assumptions were incorrect about creating an extension that will work on multiple versions of Visual Studio.  It looks like right now the extension will work on VS2012 but only if you also have VS2013 installed.  I will continue to look into this and see if I can get it to work with individual versions of Visual Studio.
  • Open Source

    • Hey David, are you willing to open source this?
    • Hi. Thanks for the interest in my little VS extension.  I am willing to open source this, but I'll need to work with my employer before I can put the code out there.  If that gets a thumbs-up then I'll change the extension description to include information about accessing the open source project.
