      • Make quick find dialog a little bit more accessible for those of us who still HATE it for good reasons

        Five years since VS2012 release, the "productive" quick find is still a major pain.

        My right eye is much worse than my left one (always has been). I don't want a small dialog (or small ANYTHING, for that matter) on the right side of my screen. Let me unpin it and reposition it wherever I please! There's already a "center" option in the similar Go To dialog - it's a start. Why doesn't quick find have that at least?

        Let me scale quick find's font size without scaling the rest of the parent window contents (I'm comfortable enough with font…

              • To provide File Transforms & Variable Substitution Options in Azure Cloud Service Deployment

                I have to deploy a project on Azure Cloud Service, I am using Azure Cloud Service Deployment task for the deployment. I have multiple config files to manage for multiple environment, but there is no option to manage File Transforms & Variable Substitution as it is there in App Service Deploy task.

                    • Change underlining styles instead of just colour

                      My colleague is partially colour blind and he says the biggest issue he has with Visual Studio is that he can't tell the colours of the underlining apart.
                      Our suggestion is that it would be great to have different style of underlining - eg a Sine Wave, an up ramp, a down ramp etc as well as the colours.

                        • Improve key bindings manager

                          It is my opinion that the keybinding manager for visual studio is abysmal. A shame because of so many other great features. I'm a student using VS Enterprise for free through my College, and I have to say that I am not considering purchasing VS afterwards specifically for this drawback.
                          This might seem extreme, but I prefer not to use the mouse as much as possible, which means I've got a lot of shortcuts to learn. Right now, learning/changing shortcuts quickly is unnecessarily burdensome. Somehow, the free community version for mac has better features than the enterprise windows version in…

                            • Cambiar el color del tema al compartir un mapa de código

                              Si se utiliza el tema oscuro, en los mapas de código se exporta el fondo negro al compartir (exportar a XPS o copiar imagen), que no es muy útil si se va a imprimir o incluir en un documento.

                              Se debería permitir elegir el color de fondo de los mapas o exportarlos con el tema claro para que el fondo fuese blanco en la imagen copiada.

                                • Allow users working on the same TFS projects to send links to code to eachother.

                                  Allow users working on the same TFS projects to send links to code to each other.

                                  Eg, I'm working on a Project3 in Solution1 that I got from the TFS. I want to show Line23 of TestClass2.cs to collegue of mine, who is working on it as well.

                                  It'd be nice to be able to right click on that line and press 'copy tfs path' or smth like that.

                                  After that, I could paste to my friend on Skype smth similar to following:

                                  vst://$/Mapped_TFS_Root/Solution1/Project3/Infrastructure/TestClass2.cs:line23

                                  Which would allow him to easily click it and access part of the code I'm talking…

                                  • Make it as easy as Code::Blocks to compile a program.

                                    I love the appearance of this product, it's much easier on the eyes than Code::Blocks is, but as a novice trying to learn how to code as well as learning how to run your program it would be amazing if I could just do simple console programs to practice coding without having to jump through hoops to just get the console to tell me the sum of a+b is 7, or strings of text. Basically, why isn't 'Compile and Build', without any extra steps for things this simple, an option?

                                      Indented text is not pasted correctly in TFS text editors
                                      Steps to reproduce
                                      add a new bug in TFS
                                      in the steps to reproduce:
                                      create a list with bullets and one of the lines indented
                                      Example:
                                      * list
                                      * list2
                                      *sublist2
                                      copy the list and paste below where a bullet is
                                      Actual result
                                      the list will be pasted in incorrect order

                                        This is such an important feature to make Visual Studio more accessible for people who are working on Keyboards only.

                                        I can't understand why this feature is still not implemented in Visual Studio, it's 2018!

                                        Please help making Visual Studio better and more accessible for everyone.

                                        • Independent code window zooming

                                          Since many people develop on a laptop and have an external monitor, depending on workstation setup, sometimes the laptop monitor can be further away than the desktop (or I suppose vice versa) and the text on the further away monitor is "smaller" and difficult to see. Therefore, I'm reviving a previously closed suggestion to allow Visual Studio to independently set the zoom level on code editors -- e.g. code editors' zoom level is NOT synchronized with one another.
