very good tools! but (sorry, I've not found any bug reporting page) I had to disable solution navigator! The problem comes with spanish keyboard. Solution Navigator uses [Ctrl+2] key to some funcionality. The problem comes because if you try to use [AltGr+2] (to get the "@" character), it's handled by the [Ctrl+2] event, so you can't write a "@" in Visual Studio! And the problem is that you can't change the keybindings for this functions (or I've been unable to find how to do it) Do you know any solution? because I think solution navigator is the second best tool of this package (Tabwell is the first one 8·D)
There is one feature i would love to see added to this and that is to auto resolve usings.
The easiest example i can use is RegistryKey or StringBuilder, so while i am writing some code and i enter in RegistryKey key = Registry.LocalMachine; then this extension could resolve the using statement at the top of the file to using Microsoft.Win32; or i enter StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder("Hello World"); i would want the using System.Text; to be auto inserted at the top of the file or in the usings section.
This would be a great addition and save hours in having to workout what usings you need upfront of jump around the code window including using statements as you need them, where a using statement cannot be resolved then everything is as it always has been and the user would need to manually include the using statement.
Crashed immediately I tried Quick Access function. Crash is stable.

Love the new version, just a couple of requests for how to improve it. Implement the functionality of my solution explorer tools - http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/ef4ac3e9-d056-4383-8ca2-11721bd879b4
You've got the collapse all but a button to go to the current item, and one to collapse all then go to current item. This is incredibly useful with the added expansions to see members the navigator can get really long fast. by doing this you no longer have to track active item and it keeps it clean.
Also, you add my btns on the solution navigator, they still work but they do the work on solution explorer.
Finally, I, like most developers keep my classes to 1 per file, It would make navigation much faster (and take up less space) if when there is only 1 class in a file doesn't bother with... MyClass.cs --MyClass ----MyMethod ----MyMethod2
and instead have... MyClass.cs ----MyMethod ----MyMethod2
As of June 2016, Solution Navigator is still missing in VS2015. Or has it been rolled into the Solution Explorer now?
I miss the quick hover tooltip that used to show class members so I didn't have to load or navigate away from the code I am editing. I can see the members in the class objects of the "new, improved" Solution Explorer, but that interrupts my coding.
I am using VS 2010 Pro. I installed Productivity Power Tools this morning and I am trying to become more familiar with it`s use. I noticed that the Solution Navigator is not displaying properties and methods like it does in the example picture. What do I need to do to make these show up, it seems like it would be useful to have them? Thanks.
Before this extension, my debugging window tabs would be remembered. Typically I keep "Autos" and "Output" selected. Now it appears that I get random tabs selected when debugging starts. Don't like that.
There's a GDI object resource leak when using the enhanced scrollbar on full mode. If you open task manager, enable GDI Objects column and open file after file you will notice it growing with each file opened, and never cleaned up. Once it hits 10000 Visual Studio crashes. Whilst it grows things get slower and slower. The enhanced scrollbar is the best feature of PPT so it would be very nice to have this fixed asap.
I confirm this with VS2012 Update 4 and extension version 11.0.60403.0.
When the enhanced scrollbar is enables and in full mode, there is a considerable GDI object leak.
To test this:
0. Make sure enhanced scrollbar is enables and in full mode
1. With task manager or process explorer, inspect the number of GDI objects used by Visual Studio
2. Open a file
3. Inspect the number of GDI objects again
4. Close the file
5. Inspect the number of GDI objects again
6. Repeat steps 2 through 5 a few dozen times; you may use the same file or another file
Expected output (assuming eager disposal of GDI objects):
3. An increase in GDI objects since the last observation
5. A decrease in GDI objects since the last observation by the same amount it increased in 3
Expected output (assuming eventual disposal of GDI objects, subject to GC):
3. An increase in GDI objects since the last observation
5. An eventual decrease in GDI objects to the number observed in 1, or by the sum of the increases observed in 3; otherwise, no change
3. An increase in GDI objects since the last observation between 50 and 100
5. A decrease in GDI objects since the last observation between 0 and 10
What this means is that the number of GDI objects grows quite fast. Eventually the default GDI limit of 10000 is reached and Visual Studio stops responding.
With multiple instances of Visual Studio open, the session's GDI limit is easily reached, affecting all other open applications and making the whole session unstable.
i love this plugin for vs2010 - ive been using it for ages but it keeps crashing my ide and its getting so bad (9 crashes today, all from this plugin) that ill have to stop using it if it cant be fixed - is the source code available so that we can fix the bugs?
