Awesome extension. I have small problem with go to definition: Here are following steps which should not trigger go to definition yet they do:
User presses mouse left button and drags mouse cursor to select text. Before user releases left mouse button, he presses ctrl key (in i.e. CTRL+C copy operation). User releases left mouse button while still holding ctrl+C. Power tools try to go to definition (which should not happen).
My suggestion: Only go to definition if mouse button was pressed while holding ctrl (not released).
Would be a great addition if it didn't keep changing my colors I have set for the editor. I always have to go in and reset my settings using the "Import and Export Settings Wizard". Also, I have my windows defaulted to floating when I open any file. It appears that the paint call isn't working correctly until I resize the window of that file. Otherwise, I'm left with the old style of the minimize/max/exit buttons you would see in Windows 98. And there are many dots that show up around the edges. Another issue is I hate that every time I start or stop an application from running, every window I have opened gets closed and reopened again. Is it really necessary to do that? These are the few rants and pet peeves I have with this tool. Otherwise, it would be awesome! Oh, one more thing, I have to double-click the "X" to close the window when it should be a single-click.
I cant install this on my machine. I get an error: This extension is not installable on any currently installed products. There is no info I can find on this issue. The Q&A section of this site is unhelpful and has poor functionality. Why is there no info on system requirements and installation? BTW I have Administrator rights. I am running VS as Administrator.
If the cursor is in the Quick Find tool window (arrow keys can move the cursor left-right), and use CTRL+V to paste, the paste actually mangles code in the Editor, it does not paste in the Quick Find window
The settings from this extension are *not* included in the regular export and import wizard, like it would supposed to be. Other extensions can do it as well. This one can do everything but not that. Copying the registry branch HKCU\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\DialogPage may contain some of the information, but at least not the most important: Which features of this all-in-one extension are enabled or disabled. Where is that setting stored, so I can at least copy it myself?
I consistently get an exception on the first mouse-over (even with all tools disabled):
<source>Editor or Editor Extension</source>

WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].
I am on Win-8-64. Any ideas?
Please improve the performance of the solution navigator. It's too slow to use with large solutions (in my case, 40 projects). The scrolling is so slow that I often use the solution explorer in addition to the navigator, because it's much faster.
I have a fast machine (Intel Core i7 2600k, 16 GB RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6950 with 2 GB, OCZ Vertex 3), but it's way too slow to completely replace the solution explorer.
Great extension; very handy.
It would be even better if there were TWO color selectors for Find Results in the Enhanced Scroll Bar options:
-Find results color in the scroll bar
-Find results color in the editor
One the most useful aspects of RockScroll/MetalScroll was the ability to see all instances of a given string in a file at a glance. The existing Caret location highlighting (in scroll bar + editor) is a step in the right direction, but having the same options for Find results would be even better.
The Solution Navigator looks great, but it's really painful that mouse wheel scrolling is badly broken. I have to click an item in the list every time before the wheel will scroll anywhere. After clicking an expander button, I first need to click an item again! Even if it's still selected.
I understand (but do not respect) that Microsoft sees the mouse wheel like a key mounted on the keyboard, following the keyboard focus instead of the mouse cursor, but this is even worse!
If anybody is still working on this tool, please consider fixing this completely. The mouse wheel is supposed to scroll anything that's currently under the mouse cursor, focused or not. Every single web browser - including Internet Explorer - can do that.
