I suggest you ...

Edit and continue should work for handled Exceptions too

Hi!

Visual Studio provides great debugging experience for exceptions not handled by user code. You're stopped at the call where exception occurred and can fix the code, set next statement to the fixed code and all just works (does not if you've disabled auto stack unwind but that's not our case).

However, if the exception is handled somewhere down the stack (e.g. with exception handler for logging and rethrow) the debugging becomes much more trickier. You can break on handled exception (if set in Exceptions window) but cannot unwind the stack and cannot fix the code.

My proposal is: to add the same debugging support for handled exceptions that unhandled ones have.

P.S. The same question and more details on SO:

Feel free to comment if you know any workaround. Thanks!
