I really love the structure visualizer, but I really wish it supported more than just C# and VB files. I spend a lot of time working with ASP and WPF applications so being able to see the structure of their respective files (HTML, ASPX, ASCX, CSS, JS, XAML, XML, etc.) would be really awesome.
Please bring back the Shift-Enter feature which you had in 2012. Below is the description of the feature: Enables using SHIFT + ENTER for automatic completion of a statement in C#. inserting the closing semi-colon and moving the cursor to the next lin
So many new features in every new VS release since VS 2005 to 2013 but I am missing my all time "VB6 IDE Procedure view", feature which helps developer to "concentrate" on one single procedure/function at a time while writing and debugging code. Why this feature in not available even in most advanced release ??? Most of the time developer works on a given function and there is no need to see all the codes on the screen. Pl add "procedure view" feature in productivity tool or in next VS release.
When displaying a signature of a C# method, it will display the first line of it. That however may only contain an attribute like "[ComVisible(true)]", which is not very helpful. So the structure visualizer should ignore all prefixed attribute lines and instead display the actual function signature, e.g. "public class SettingsItems : ISettingsItems".

I love PPT, but I can't use it any longer due to a memory leak.
When PPT2013 is enabled, my VS leaks 20Mb each time I debug my (C# ASP.NET) project.
With it disabled, this drops to about 3-4Mb per debug (still not ideal - but more manageable).
VS memory usage in Mb after debugging then stopping my project, with PPT enabled:
299, 327, 345, 367, 389, 405, 426 ...
295, 298, 301, 306, 309, 312, 314 ...
Eventually VS grinds to a halt and I have to restart it.
Please can someone get in touch with me so I can provide you more diagnostic details? Really hoping for a fix as I love the functionality!
Have tried disabling all but the features I use, but still get same issue.
Thanks a lot,
In past versions of Visual Studio I could change the Quick Find highlight color via Tools->Options->Environment->Fonts and Colors->Find Highlight (Extension). I no longer see this setting. How do I change the highlight color? The default color is very bright on a dark color theme.
I have a solution that has several Class Library and Windows Service projects as well as one Class Library with Entity Framework and one MVC project. After much testing I have reduced the loading issue I am having to be Power Tools. If I disable/uninstall all the add-ons that I can and add only Power Tools in, if I have a .config file or .js file open in VS 2013 (Ultimate) and then close and restart VS the "Preparing Solution..." dialog displays and it will sit trying to parse one of the solutions and never exit. VS ends up using about 13% processor (on a quad core i7). I have left it sit for up to 15 minutes and it never finishes. I have to kill and restart VS which then works fine because it skips the document load. I have found though, that if I disable the Document Well Tab feature that this issue goes away. I really like the Document Wells but not as much as being able to reopen a solution and have the files I had open still be open.
In an MVC project I have several "Index.cshtml" files that are now grouped together by name. This makes it hard to find the correct one. A sort on full filepath instead of just filename would keep files together that belong together (according to the solution's structure).
Maybe it's useful to add the name of the containing folder (though that takes space) or change the tab-color (zebra striping: files of the same folder have the same color, adjacent files of a different folder have a slightly different color)
Yes, please bring back the Shift-Enter you had in 2012. It's been very hard to adapt without it now. Below is your description of the feature:
Enables using SHIFT + ENTER for automatic completion of a statement in C#. inserting the closing semi-colon and moving the cursor to the next line.
I noticed that when I have a mix tabs and spaces issue the toolbar will show ask me if I want to fix this issue, but the close button (the "X" button on the right) is very large and scaled badly.
Any chance for a fix?
After I installed Productivity Power Tools 2013, I can't open console application or create console application.
Because Visual Studio 2013 will show some problems and close it.
Any one has the same issue ?
You can adjust the colors of the lines shown in the margin through tools/options/fonts & colors (see "Block Structure (class)" for example). The same colors are used for both the in-editor adornment and the margin and, while you can't set the opacity, you should be able to set something that is a bit more subtle.
