Tab well colors and grouping are very helpful. Only additional feature I would like to see added would be a multilevel tab well when it is in the top or bottom position (like in the Tabs Studio extension, see link). Having the tabs on the side wastes a lot of screen space and you still can't read long file names.
The tool is very good but after installing Productivity Power Tools was not possible to navigate within the expression editor in the file .rdlc (Report) using the arrow keys. This impaired enough. This can be changed now or is an error that needs correcting?
This is just EXCELLENT add-on tool. It helps me to do exactly what I need in my development. I just started to use it and I'm charmed, we will see what is going to happen after some time as I had experienced some issues with add-ons regarding the cached data and slowness after certain time of use. For now this is exactly what I needed and I hope it will stay stable and fast as it was the first time I opened the feature. Keep up the excellent work and Thanks a bunch!!!!
OpenXML editor is suppose to open a document, excel spreadsheet... (if you drag them into VS) in the various XML parts. However, EVERYTIME I try this it opens EXCEL or WORD.... WHAT needs to be turned ON to make it open the XML Parts? Yes, Productivity Power tools have been installed (and uninstalled and reinstalled) many times. VS has been closed and reopened many times. WHY WILL THIS NOT WORK?
This plugin seems to access all the database connections in the server explorer, i noticed this as one of the connections was not using windows authentication and i had not saved the password. so each time i righclicked a project and selected propeties the connection dialog appeared on a databse that is not related to that project or any in the solution. I not sure why this plugin might need to access all my databases, but as a precaution i will not be using this plugin as it makes me nervious.
Hey, my C++ uses a lot of code generation using macros. The side bar in full mode shows my files being many times larger than they are, so the scroll bar doesn't behave very nicely. Is there a way to prevent the macro expansion?

This has been happening for years. If you pins tabs, they work fine while VS is running. But if you restart VS, they will appear correct on first load, but once you run the application and then stop it, you will lose all your tab pinnings.
This happens more frequently in VS2013, so that you lost them not just on the initial run/stop.
How I could disable the blue Tabs colorization? I preffer to see the default VS colorization. I tried to diable (turn OFF) ALL the Productivity Power Tools
features but the tabs still colorizing... this seems a bug, to disable colorization the only way that I see is to uninstall Productivity Power Tools.
