    • Tie saved windows layouts to IDE mode

      With VS2015 you introduced windows layouts. That's nice.

      What I'm missing is the possibility, to tie a stored layout to a specific IDE mode, eg. debugging, so that it is applied automatically when I start debugging.

      • Don't sync zooming level between 2 different code files

        In Visual Studio 2013 we were able to have different zooming levels on 2 different code files. But in 2015 version all the open files sync their zooming level , and we don't even have an option to change that. It would really help if I could have different zooming levels , since I'm using 2 monitors , a bigger one and a smaller one.

          • Java [Open JDK]

            Java is the most widely taught and used language in the developing countries like India but there is no IDE as powerful as Visual studio for it. So i request you too add JAVA support officially for the Visual studio. Best option will be support for Open-JDK which is already an open source project.

            • System.Net.IPAddress should implement IEquatable<T> interface

              As title says. Since its Equals() and GetHashCode() methods all work as other classes that implement IEquatable<T> interface, I see no reasons that IEquatable<T> is not fit for System.Net.IPAddress.

              • to make it simpler

                I suggest you to make things simpler. Every version of visual studio has new templates and some time it is not easy to understand "what to do" with "what". It is not only about mobile (where templates grows like mushrooms) but event for desktop and web applications where some time competences mix up.

                • Put a search box in Resources.resw

                  Put a search box in Resources.resw. When we have 500 strings in the Resources.resw it´s quite annoying to modify a string. Put a search box to make things faster.

                    • Make Undo/Redo Work in Find/Replace Dialog

                      Often times I find myself typing the wrong thing into the find/replace window. My instinct is to hit ctrl+z to fix the error, but this ends up undoing something whatever file I have open. This is especially frustrating if you've ctrl+z'd a few times to try and find something, and are left not knowing which "change" you're on.

                      • Show everything in English

                        Please, please, please. I live in Mexico and speak Spanish. However, since I'm technical guy, I want to read everything in English. Many, many, many technical terms are not applicable or translatable. I hate to read in Spanish when developing or researching about a technical topic. That's why I prefer to sign out msdn page!
                        Please, please, please!
                        Thank you!

                        • Indicator in the VS IDE titlebar for the Pending Code Reviews

                          Place an indicator in the VS IDE titlebar for the number of Pending TFS Code Reviews.

                          Currently, when a team member sends me a review, I have no way of knowing is exists unless I keep an eye on my Outlook.

                          We should have an indicator that changes background color to Yellow or Orange or Red to indicate that a team member has a pending code review.

                          • Allow conditional compilation for PublishUrl and other additional elements

                            MSBuild allows some properties (e.g., OutputPath and DefineConstants) to be dependent on configuration, but not others.

                            Most helpful to me would be the values on the Publish tab of the project properties page, for example, PublishUrl, InstallUrl, and ApplicationVersion. This would allow a "Test" configuration to be created that will publish to a separate URL for user acceptance testing.

                            Currently I have to change all those values by hand for each update to the Test version.

                            Doesn't it seem odd that I can change the Assembly version based on a conditional, but not the Publish version?

                            • Open visual studio prompts in the same monitor visual studio is running from.

                              I run a multi-monitor setup with 3 monitors. Very frequently I keep Visual Studio in the left-most monitor. Now let's say I go to Team Explorer and want to undo changes/check-out on a file, but I've made changes to it. I get a prompt that says the usual "you've made changes to this file. Are you sure you want to undo those changes?" - caveat is that it opens in my middle (primary) monitor, not the leftmost monitor holding my Visual Studio window.

                              It's very jarring and aggravated further by the fact that I'm running Parallels on a Mac, with…

                              • Optimize syntax of Xaml Binding

                                Create a new syntax for binding. More like angularJs style.
                                Example:
                                "
                                <textbox text="{{myValue}}" />
                                <textbox text="{{myValue|myconverter}}" />
                                <textbox text="{{myBool?value1:value2}}" />
                                "
                                The old one is to verbose.

                                • Add text search field for each visual studio menu item

                                  example:

                                  current workflow to open "Packager Manager Console":
                                  1) click on view
                                  2) read all the items in the list
                                  3) click on "other windows"
                                  4) read all items again till you reach the manager console
                                  5) click it

                                  proposed workflow
                                  1) click on view => autofocus on an input text field
                                  2) type "manag..." => at each keypress the items list get filtered by the name
                                  3) press on the right button

                                  It will speed up things to me

                                  • Microsoft R Server Look and Feel

                                    Microsoft R Server should take the look and feel of Visual Studio 2015 and not of Visual Studio 2008. It should be updated.

                                        • Expand/Collapse option for Included/Excluded changes in Team Explorer > Pending changes

                                          I am using VS Professional 2015. Navigate to Team explorer > Pending Changes > Included or Excluded changes > View Options > Tree View, Right click on any underlying folder and you may get 4,5 options. Here we need Collapse all/Expand all options as it will definitely save developer's time to search for specific file in huge list. Most of time the list is huge.
