Thanks so much.

bad one.

it changes the behavior of building....

by brainchest | April 16 2014

This is an awesome toolset.

Works great. Only complaint is that the speed that the delay and speed for showing the main menu bar (if it is hidden) is not configurable.

As it stands, the delay is pretty annoying, and then you still have to wait for the animation to finish.

Aside from that little annoyance, a great and indispensable add-in.

Put cursor in StackOverflow search box in the title bar

Click "Close" on Visual Studio.
Doesn't close.

Shrink VS window, go to Options. Can't scroll the page. On my machine even maximized I can't show everything that's available to be set. In particular on the Solution Badges sheet

All valid points!
Both of those issues have been fixed internally and will go live with next release.

Works perfect, thank you.

Installed it yet to use

Essential for any developer, always the first thing I install.

You Rockst!

Very nice addition.

One of my must have extensions. Great features on free edition.

by Binori | November 25 2013

Must have for VS users. Thx for your work.

by Krishna Nadiminti | November 23 2013

Awesome set of extensions - thanks for making this. I'm a huge fan.

Any chance we can customize the colours for the output window?

Thanks, you can customize colours from Tool | Options | Environment | Fonts And Colors | VSCommands (more details: http://vscommands.squaredinfinity.com/features#outputwindow-enhancements)

This is for me as an obvious part of Visual Studio.

I cannot live without the output window highlighting, debug as, and solutions badges. The solution badges feature alone makes this worthwhile - I often have a half dozen or more instance of Visual Studio open and being able to identify which is which is a life-saver.

by Tribute 2 PanterA | October 08 2013

like this a bunch. thanks.

by NoiZy83 | July 19 2013

I used the new version, but like you said, I still have this problem, but very often on many files ;(
But if you work on it, I will wait.

Kind regards

Could you let me know if the problem is still there with the latest release ( ?
Couple of fixes went in with it and it seems that it's working well now.

Thank you,

  • Solution Badges partially broken in VS2013 Update 3
    1 Posts | Last post August 06, 2014
    • Since I upgraded to VS2013 Update 3, the Git branch name is no longer displayed:
      - in the main window title
      - in the solution explorer window title
      However I can still see it in the taskbar jump list and Windows task switcher (Alt-Tab).
      For some reason, it still works for SVN (using AnkhSVN, if it matters); the problem only occurs with Git (haven't tried Mercurial and TFS).
  • Dark Theme StackOverflow Panel Colour Issues
    1 Posts | Last post July 18, 2014
    • Hey there,
      I recently was told about this extension and wanted to try it out.  I saw the inbuilt stack overflow search and jumped for joy, until I found that:
      a) it doesn't work well with the dark theme enabled i.e. can't read links as they are too dark etc.
      b) there doesn't seem to be anyway, that I've found yet, to change the colours for this panel.
      So I was wondering if there is a way to change the colours here so that I can read the results?
  • License for VSCommand Pro 11
    2 Posts | Last post June 27, 2014
    • Hello, if I purchase a license for VSCommands Pro 11 to use in Visual Studio 2013, may I also use the license for VSCommands Pro 10 for Visual Studio 2010?  At work we're still on 2010, but will be moving to 2013 (or newer) in the near future.  I was hoping to avoid having to purchase 2 licenses (one for each version if one will work with both).
      Thank you
    • Hi,
      From what i could read on their website, you'll have to buy a license for each VS version you use....
      So if you're planning to change you VS version in a near future i would recommand to wait before purchasing the license.
  • Aero Snap behaviour override
    1 Posts | Last post June 18, 2014
    • Hi,
      In IDE Ehancement > Keyboard, i checked "allow Keyboard enhancements" and "Change [Windows Key + arrow] Behaviour"
      The problem now is that Aero snap still moves the VS Window all around my desktop when usgin the "Windows + arrow" combination.
      For this option to work correctly i have to also check the "Disable Aero Snap" option too.
      Is that a bug ?
      If not, you should present "Change [Windows Key + arrow] Behaviour" as a functionality of the "Disable Aero snap" feature, because the way it is now can be confusive.
      Thanks for the answers
  • Minor bug / error when using Productivity Power Pack 2013
    1 Posts | Last post June 11, 2014
    • Just an FYI, if one sets the Code Block End Tagger (which BTW is awesome) to navigate on double-click and also has Syntactic Line Compression in Microsoft's Productivity Power Pack 2013 enabled (which it is by default), the double-click is NOT navigating.  I disabled Syntactic Line Compression and it works now.  Perhaps there is some workaround from your end to enable compatibility between the two, but for the moment being able to navigate is more important to me than the line compression afforded by MS's extension.
  • VSCommands 13 Won't display Menu (The specified table does not exist)

    • I'm not able to see VSCommands menu. Checking the activity log I found errors that say The specified table does not exist
  • Reverence to not existing DLL in extension.vsixmanifest
    1 Posts | Last post May 20, 2014
    • Hi,
      I guess it isn't intended that the vsix file references the files 'SquaredInfinity.VSCommands.Features.VS12.dll' and 'SquaredInfinity.VSCommands.Foundation.VS12.dll' in it's 'extension.vsixmanifest'?
      I noticed errors from vs when running with /log and tracked them down to this file.
  • This is a meaningless and useless title.

    • "VSCommands is developed by a small group of passionate developers who believe coding should be fun and with right tools nothing is impossible! Since its first release in 2010, VSCommands has been downloaded over 2,000,000 times and is used daily by tens of thousands of developers worldwide."
      That's all great, but, 
    • That's a valid point.
      There was a brief features description before, but it seems that it might have been removed in error. I'll update it shortly.
      You can see details of all features here: http://vscommands.squaredinfinity.com/features
    • Still just an empty summary.
  • Free or not free?
    1 Posts | Last post February 11, 2014
    • The Visual Studio Gallery lists this extension as "free", however, on the homepage I can find various purchase options. Is the VSCommands plugin free or not free?
      Is "Lite" the free version and "Pro" the to-purchase version? If yes, why is the downloadable product version at VS-Gallery the Pro version?
  • Where are the release notes?
    2 Posts | Last post January 22, 2014
