When installing if you are using TFS, access to TFS server get stuck. Sometimes when using CTRL+Click to go to function definition or Called By it fires an error, but it let my VS2010 keep working. A USEFULL feature would be adding a search box in the Entity Framework Update from database dialog box.
Great tool, but the "Fix mixed Tabs" Extension seems to have some Problems in 10.0.20214.15: Clicking "Don't show again" does nothing, clicking "Tabify" or "Untabify" causes VS to crash. I will disable it for now.
Great tool, but after the current update (installed it from inside VS) I couldn´t open any project in VS.2010 (freezing VS)!!! Now a repair/reinstall of VS is running (after uninstalling PPT)... Before the update I loved the tool (rating 5 stars)
Edit: After the repair the same thing still happened, but only with the project that had been opened while installing the PPT update. => Close VS, delete .suo and .csproj.user => reopen the project and now it works again. I don´t know why, but I don´t ask as long as it works ;-)
Amazing!! Thank you for this extension. Unlike many users, I have been using this extension for over a month now and have not had any crashing issue so far. And this is not the only extension and/or add-on that I have. I am using VS.net Pro 2010.
Cool and useful extension. I like it. I have one annotation for the "Align Assignments". It would be cool to set the formatting rule so, that the equal signs in the assignment block are not shifted to the right.
This is a fantastic add-on, however it kills the speed of my App completely when I run it from within VS. It's like full tracing, logging and who knows what else, is on. If it didn't interfere with VS's speed, I would have given it 5 stars.
I love what this extension does, but sadly it also results in a much less stable Visual Studio. At one point it somehow got into a state where VS was crashing every time I opened a C# file; this extension was definitely the culprit since disabling it fixed the problem. The problem didn't come back when I tried re-enabling it, and I guess it goes to show how much I like the extension, or maybe just how dumb I am, but I still have it enabled today. Really, really, really hope you guys fix the bugs soon though! I was hoping maybe SP1 beta would improve things but it hasn't =(
Productivity Power Tools is a great addition to VS2010. My only complaint is the mixed tabs and spaces warning never goes away even when I change the settings in the options and click the "Don't show again" button. Is there any way to keep these warnings from popping up? I don't want to fix mixed tabs and I'm getting tired of clicking the "Don't show again" button over and over again.
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.
