"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.
Open XML Package Editor Power Tool for Visual Studio is NOT working as expected. Have installed, uninstalled, reinstalled Productivity Power Tools many times. Closed and reopened VS many times.
Yet, rather than showing the XML PARTS when a word document or excel spreadsheet is dragged into VS..... it simply opens WORD or EXCEL.
What needs to be turned on? All the documentation read seems to suggest simply dragging a file into VS will open the Open XML Package editor. Yet it is not happening....
How is this tool suppose to work?
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?
