For those, who can't get it working. Seems like I fixed an issue. Binary: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxDK3DVMWHdzdWR4d01aUVZVYTQ I've made myself a version with bigger text and green instead of blue text: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxDK3DVMWHdzMjVpZ204X1pFenc
I've made a pull request to author's repo, so probably it will be updated soon here. For those, who's curios about a cause of extension was broken: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/39074162/visual-studio-2015-different-settings-values-in-experimental-and-normal-instanc
It breaks my Ctrl+C Ctrl+V and Ctrl+Z...and that makes it useless for me...unfortunately. The extensions i have installed are: .Net reflector Visual Studio Extension 188.8.131.523 IntelliCommand 1.0.30816.1 Nuget package manager 2.2.40116.9051 Snippet Designer 1.5.0
If i disable (and restart VS) IntelliCommand, copy/paste/undo commands work again.
Very Good. But it hangs sometimes when you preview or conduct an alt type of key when there is no doc open (it seems). Also, shows up when binding other keys, seem to get a problem here with alts too. Some behavior also hangs waiting for second key, putting VS into an unrecoverable state.
Despite all this, very well worth it. If you stick in a toggle disable that would be a quick workaround for some of this.
Great utility for Visual Studio. Would love for this to work better with multi-monitor setups. Currently the pop up window opens so that it spans across multiple monitors and makes it a bit hard to pick out the command you are looking for.
In one PC Intelli Command is not working and the options screen shows no combo boxes, in all others PC works and the option screen is the normal one.

Already uninstalled and installed with no differences.
Yes, it is Visual Studio 2013 Professional Update 1.
2. Done, installed.
4. Building the solution IntelliCommand.2013.sln: 1 Warning, 10 Errors:
Changing "Target Framework" from 4 to 4.5, build without errors and runs Ok in the Experimental Instance.
Tried to install the IntelliCommand.vsix from the bin
Debug folder and throws an exception when trying to open the Options dialog
The issue is in a box with Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center, VS2012 Pro and VS2013 Pro installed (was working before :) ).
No issues in Windows 8.1 Pro, VS2013 Pro.
No issues in W7 Pro, VS2012 Pro, VS2013 Pro.
Weird, I had the same issue with the building (I guess VS Update 1 broke something), to fix it I've changed target framework to 4.5.1 as well. After that I could launch VS Experimental with IntelliCommand in it. Did you uninstall IntelliCommand before trying to build it via VS?
Intellicommand stopped working in VS2013, I think as of update 1. I cloned the repo, installed VS2013 SDK, opened 2013 sln, set target to 4.51, and did a successful build. Running in experimental version the vsix mostly worked. Chord keys did not. I had same experience with Options as @JVS.
Closed experimental instance, removed or disabled as many extensions as I could in my production VS 2013 instance. Restarted. Installed the vsix that I just built. Intellicommand did not work at all.
Copied new vsix and installed to another VS2013 Pro instance, also running on Win 8.1, my beta environment. Running VS2013 update 2 CTP 2. Intellicommand worked, except for chord keys, which worked by pressing and releasing, instead of pressing and holding for 1.5 secs.
May try a couple more combinations soon...
1 more VS 2013.2 CTP2 and standard install of Intellicommand from VS gallery. Same functionality as above with chord keys working on immediate release.
You indicated already that IC may be incompatible with programs that intercept key commands ("It looks like you can have some "translator" or "speller" or virus in the system, which can intercept key down events.") Unluckily, it seems that IC is incompatible with Synergy -- when I have Synergy connected, nothing happens, but when I unload it, IC works normally. Is there a way to make IC work with Synergy?
Anyway, thanks for this helpful extension.
I seem to have a problem with the Shift+F5 not working when I have this extension enabled :-(
I've got a NUnit test file open with a break point in. Start debugging with F5, reach the break point, step through the target code, and hit Shift+F5.
The NUnit window disappears, and nothing will re-open it ... double click in Solution Explorer, right click on it and View Code
Current extension are ...
Microsoft Web Developer Tools
NuGet Package Manager
NUnit Test Adapter (Beta 4)
Productivity Power Tools
Hold down the alt key in the editor so you can use the mouse to select a rectangular region. While you are selecting this region, the menu pops up and gets in the way...so you better do it quick! :-)
So, I propose your timer that determines when to popup takes into account the mouse moving and will not popup!
First that is a good idea, but with this extension installed some shortcuts does not work anymore like : Ctrl + F5 or Ctrl + tab ... is there a way to assign a shortcut to show the popup for this extension when needed and not when Ctrl, shift and alt are pressed for 2 seconds?
Do you have any other installed plugins for VS which can do something with focus / keyboards / etc? It works in this scenario. What text you tried to select, in editor or somewhere else?
It looks like you can have some "translator" or "speller" or virus in the system, which can intercept key down events. Do you have such software in your system? It can be also some software which take a focus when you select a text.
