The new Add reference dialog is absolutely fantastic. I've been writing a lot of demo apps lately, and I've been spending a lot of time adding references. Every time I open the standard Add reference dialog, I have to wait for it to populate. Again and again. And again. And again. Finally got fed up and did a search, and found this. OH ... MY ... GOD. Thank you so much to the people who created this.
Now that I'm starting to look at the other parts of this toolkit, I'm amazed even further. The Scroll Bar "Full Mode"! The Vertical Tabs! The HTML Copy - no longer do I have to copy, paste into Word, copy back out of Word, then paste into OneNote.
I'm sure I'm forgetting other things I like. Bottom line, this toolkit is fantastic. I hope all these features make it into the next version of VS, but if not, I hope you release this toolkit for it. I WON'T GO BACK!!!
The search is cool, but it would be better if I could see number of found results (in case when I search in entire solution I’m not sure if I stepped through all results) Also make it work with “Find Results 1 OR 2” panels, so it displays the found results in there Thx
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?
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 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.
