Suggestion: How about adding "VB6 IDE like procedure view" feature. That option will allow developer to concentrate on desire procedure all the time. I am missing this feature all the time in VS.NET IDE!
I must agree with previous comment. This addin really slows typing in VS2013. I'm having VS10x CodeMap, Resharper and few other addins, but when I install VS10x Editor View Ehancer it really slows down the typing experience. Too bad since I really like the functionality.
Sorry, I like the features, but tool affects the performance of the visual studio 2013. It is to the point that there is pause between each letter I type. For example, when I typed "test", I have wait for it appear.
Sincerely we haven't heard of such a performance issue as of today. Can you please be so kind and contact us by email (supportATaxtoolsDOTcom) with some details as code file language, code file size etc, other extensions you are using?
I like this Code Editor View Enhancer very much :-)
It makes it easier to view review lots of code.
Is the source code available anywhere? I would like to fork and make some improvements.
My number 1 improvement wish is to be able to color and/or bold function names inside methods. I would even like members to have one color and static and external methods to have slightly different colors. I need to experiment to find out what works for me.

Potentially I would like to improve your tool to make it highlight when my code does not comply with these rules.
Thank you for taking the time to post your impressions. Currently, Editor View Enhancer is a commercial extension, i.e. not open source. However, I will keep into account your suggestions and if possible implement them in a future release (albeit custom formatting for function calls might be beyond the scope of this product).
I bought this extension mainly for its feature annotating endings of methods. But soon I discovered that properly chosen highlight color of types and especially of method definitions is significantly lowering effort of my mind – although trained – to quickly navigate through the code. Small added icons assist well in the job, too. As I am currently bound to large VB.NET project, in this plugin I am currently badly missing annotating of #End Region directives in the same way as endings of classes or methods are annotated. (Also adding icons not only to class properties, but also to class-level variable declarations would add a value. Usually there is only few such declarations and they are important enough to be spotted among the first.)
I like this add on. Even purchased it. The editor view extender really helps with loooong method/property/class blocks. There needs to be a way to provide this same capability for long "blocks" in general such as "if" and "while" blocks. That would make this the perfect add on.
Great plugin! Michael is it possible to remove the space that Visual Studio inserts at the bottom of the viewport right after your code?
Basically the issue is the you scroll to the very bottom of a file in visual studio, only the last line is visible at the very top of the screen. I think the last page of code should fill your screen like it does in every other text editor. That would be a great feature for your plugin if you could address that.

I don't use all the features of this extension, since some of them already exist in one of my other addons, but this is a very nice extension with some very useful features for navigating your code at a glance and having structure pop out at you.
