The VS 11 Reference Manager should store its size and the width of the columns
The new Reference Manager in VS 11 is great, but I have to resize it and the columns in the assemblies list every time I use it. The reason for that is that we use relatively long assembly names (CompanyName.ProductName.Area.Subarea). This is annoying. Please add code to store the size of the dialog and the size of each column when closing and restore this sizes when opening.
The default column widths in the various tabs within the Add Reference dialog are pretty narrow and tend to hide the full text. I find myself widening them so I can see what I'm selecting. The next time I display Add Reference I have to do the same thing over again - widen the columns so I can see the text. Other dialogs and other applications remember how wide you last sized the columns.
it's still annoying in the vs 2012
This is really annoying...
I have the same problem. Every time I open the "Add Reference" dialog to add a reference to another project, I am forced to resize the columns to be able to see the names of the projects. Otherwise, I only see the first part of their name, which in my case is always the same.
