I suggest you ...

Make dialog windows non-modal

In IDE modal windows sometimes are really annoying hiding each other and not allowing to get back and copy/read smth without closing current window. I think the approach they use in SQL Management Studio is much more user-friendly

        I agree wholeheartedly. The XML Visualizer is great to have and all, but the inability to have it open while using the debugger is tedious. In fact, I'd really prefer all the modals to be non-modal, with the exception of maybe the Options dialog, but I feel particularly adament about any window showing application data, as they really belong to me, not the IDE.

        Add my vote for this... especially the debug\inspector windows. They'd be much more useful if you could view the inspector and use the "Autos" or "Locals" windows simultaneously.

        There a lot of dialogs in Visual Studio. :)

        Any in particular that you are referring to?
