"Color Printing" seems to be very buggy, it makes printing source code impossible here. But switching it off makes the normal printing of source code work again. The "Guidelines" are helpful. "Colored Tabs" and "Enhanced Scrollbar" are nice, but not really necessary. There could be a (better) explanation on what every feature exactly is. "Fix Mixed Tabs" is not really speaking for itself. But it seems to warn when Tab- and Space-Indention is used mixed in a file and can correct it.
Installed vs2012 PRO and afterward started receiving invalid index. Exception from HRESULT: 08002000B (DISP_E_BADINDEX) when I attempted to copy from code. Disabled tool and error has gone away. Also clipboard did not copy until disabled. Rated a 2 only because I was not able to use long enough to try out other features. Do not have time to troubleshoot or contend with the error.
Yay. I can ALT+Arrow my lines up and down again. Also the tab well is usable now. No more Control+Tab Control+Tab Control+Tab Control+Tab Control+Tab flurries to try to get back to a previous file. This is an excellent set of enhancements, Microsoft!
All the features are great except one related to Custom Document Well -> Color tabs by project.
When it colors the tabs, it creeps into the eyes. I wish instead of coloring the tab name completely, they could given an option to just add one colored dot or use the colored underline for the tab names. That would make it a five star tool for me to use.
I'm very surprised that these essential features are still not part of Visual Studio itself. Please provide a 2013 version, as VS2013 lacks the document well, the format/organize on save options, the ctrl-click to definition.
I love this extension, please please please make this available to VS 2013, I miss the tabs layout feature that put my tabs to the left of my project. That should be a default action of Visual Studios in my opinion.
Could not find file 'C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\Extensions\bpum0wxo.q45\ColorizedSignatureHelp.pkgdef'.
It seems to be able to do this when you open VS 2012 without a solution/project open however.. Still quite a perplexing issue, I think.
Is there a guide or examples for making the reg ex color assignments work for tabs? I cannot get anything to match.
Do the reg ex types have to go before the project types in the list? Is there a way to re-order the list?
I would love to see the productivity power tools supports vs 2013. There were some nice things they included from ppt but the vertical tabs is not there. I loved the simplicity of the choices and I love ppt. I have been using a purchased product for the vertical tabs support but I don't find to be as good as ppt nor are the choices on arranging tabs as simple.
This is very annoying :-(
I've found that I just simply cannot use VS without PPT + CodeRush, and both are not available for VS2013. I think they both should be part of VS.
I'll be using VS2012 in the meanwhile
I just wonder that such an important (IMO) first-party extension is not ready to ship along with VS 2013. The same was true for VS 2012 when it took some weeks after release until the PPT were finally available. I can't imagine VS 2013 is so different from VS 2012 that it would take so long to port it over (maybe I'm wrong) as some portions of it are now integrated into the IDE (brace completion, for example). There could be at least a beta or something.
With Visual Studio 2012 we had to wait quite a while for the power tools to be available. If you're moving to yearly releases of Visual Studio it makes it absolutely critical that the power tools come out very soon after (I would say within a week)
