Help me find code from the stack trace in a log file faster
There is an error in a log file. I see the stack trace, which contains the file name and line number. I want to get to the code where that file name and line number exist. What do I do? First I copy the file name from the log file. I then tab to visual studio then hit Ctrl+"comma" to get the "Navigate To" window. I paste the file name and get to the file. I then hit Ctrl+g to get to the goto line command and type in the line number. Now what if the Navigate To window supported the line:*** syntax. All you would have to do is type is paste something like Customer.cs:line 400 and it would take you there

i have a better idea, you can call this feature: hydrate stack trace:
this feature consists of copying a stack trace that was written to a log file, then
pasting it into the "stack trace" window in visual studio.
Then visual studio will simply make the stack trace clickable as if the program was running
but actually it is in edit mode.

This shouldn't be in games. I meant to put it in General. Can I move it or can a moderator move it for me?
