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.
As a VS SDK developer, your extension seems a great example of the usage of all API within VS SDK.
Do you planned to deliver this extension as source code - or at least there is a way to have access to it?
How about adding the ability to print in color? (something you could do in VS2008, 2005, 2003...should I continue?)
That'd make you guys my hero for sure! (pasting code into Word and reformatting it is just icky. Plus you lose the line numbers!)
When I try to open the XML Schema Explorer, the 'Solution Navigator' gets the focus and the XML Schema Explorer pops up and get closed immediately again. So where's the XML Schema Explorer Window? I think it has to do with tools. Same experience someone?
I can create and compile a c++ test project. However, if VS 2010 is restarted and I try to load the test project solution, VS crashes. It works fine if the 'Productivity Power Tools' extension is disabled. I am using version 10.0.10725.12.
By default the tools bind to Ctrl-2 to show intellisense info. The binding is flawed so that also AltGr-2 is considered Ctrl-2. This causes a huge problem since AltGr-2 is @ character in the Finnish keyboard layout. Could this be fixed so that AltGr is NOT considered the same as Ctrl?
