  1. Dont put the build button right above the rebuild all button. A misclick means I have to wait 5 mins to rebuild all.

    pad the "ëxpensive to misclick" buttons with other buttons or blank space or confirm selection of expensive button like rebuild all

    • On the stories backlog, it would be good to have a column to signify urgency.

      On the stories backlog, it would be good to have a column to signify urgency. So whilst i can add due date or target date as they are not fields in the items them selves I have no way to flag a ticket that is due soon.

      • Show the variable's type tooltip when I hover over a variable in the find window.

        When I hover over a variable in a source window, I get some useful type information appear. Show that same hover tooltip information in the 'Find Results' window.

          • FlowCharting Programming Add-In VS2015

            Hello my idea is to make a Flowcharting programming based application that will be able to allow you to code in several different languags (c++ / c#) and of severel different project types (win32 / wpf / console / unity3d)
            The program will have tools to build valid flowcharts which will write the code for you, then once the flowchart is complete so is the code and then it can be compiled / run / debbuged.
            Another idea was to allow GUI Forms / Unity3d Objects/ Variable / Function creation and editing.
            And finally an editor which will allow you…

            • Ctrl+click to recursively expand/collapse outlining regions

              When Ctrl+clicking the +/- box of an outlining region, expand/collapse all the regions inside this block too. SciTE editor can do this, it's great for productivity.

              • Replace c1/c2 with Clang/LLVM

                I'm compiling/running the same code (SAME CODE!!!) both with vc14 and Clang/LLVM 4.0.0. The Clang/LLVM executable runs 28.5% faster than the c1/c2 generated executable. Please consider dumping c1/c2 and go for a proper compiler.

                  • Make web performance popup JavaScript dialogs open correctly during web test recording

                    During web performance or coded UI test recording. All web popup dialogs open in full window and cannot be closed. example window.open("");
                    This stops all recording going forward. This needs to be addressed because many web applications use popup search dialogs.

                    I'd also say that if you are going to compete with load runner and other testing applications. You should fully support most basic web functionality. I work for a very large company and we need to switch from load runner to another application. I would be able to suggest VS load testing on Azure... If i could progress past…

                        • Pinned Tabs Export/import/Save for specific project

                          It would be great for me and I'm sure for many others, to been able to export import save pinned tabs of a project in cases like mine where I have a project with 20-40 files and I have pinned some of them for some reason... The current cached pinned tabs system of VS it works when you reopen a project with pinned tabs but some times after a while (days, or months) Visual Studio gets crazy and cannot load the cached pinned tabs of that project. Also if you change folder name or path of the project then pinned…

                          • Show cursor row/column in commit comment box.

                            In some cases there are restrictions in number of characters allowed in the first line . E.g. when pushing to Gerrit for review.

                            Perhaps even better if have a template file defining the formatting rules of the commit comment, and give some visual feedback to the user when writing a comment that is too long.

                            • Add option to close tab group

                              I'd like to easily be able to close an entire secondary tab group, currently this doesn't seem possible without disrupting my primary tab group ('Move all tabs to previous tab group'). This is a common task when I've got some reference files open on the right and then when I'm done with them, I want to consolidate space so I want that entire tab group to go away. Xcode calls this the 'assistant editor' and is a useful feature IMO (despite its numerous other problems).

                              Along the same lines, it seems to me that the options you're presented with when…

                                  Hi

                                  I have installed VS 15 using the light installer on my existing machine with Vs 2015. I have opened a solution created with VS 2015 and I get this at buildtime:

                                  >Project file contains ToolsVersion="14.0". This toolset may be unknown or missing, in which case you may be able to resolve this by installing the appropriate version of MSBuild, or the build may have been forced to a particular ToolsVersion for policy reasons. Treating the project as if it had ToolsVersion="15.0".

                                  Msbuild 14 is present on my but Vs 15 does not seem to detect it. How can I…

                                  • Stop resetting "Find and Replace -- Find Options" everytime it is shown

                                    Everytime I use Ctrl+Shift+F to find all instances in solution or whatever, it resets all options under "Find Options" in this window.

                                    This is NOT how it used to behave as late as VS2012 and it is particularly frustrating in terms of productivity inefficiency. I would like it to always save the last settings used when opening Find and Replace instead of always resetting everything.

                                    If this is indeed an option, I would love to be enlightened as to where it is, because I've searched long and hard and come up with nothing.

                                    Thanks

                                        With each breakpoint, I should be able to maintain some notes...

                                        frequently, I need to save some pointers or values.
                                        For lazy people entire state of Auto/Local window should be saved.
                                        These windows could have icons to save the current states.
                                        State of the Auto/Local-window, I mean the variables and their values.

                                        These notes should be arranged by the visits..
                                        Anytime during the debug i should be able to access the notes via
                                        the breakpoints hierarchy.
                                        The Notes can themselves be arranged by debug-sessions.

                                        I, this will be great help to all developers..
                                        Thanks,
                                        Jyoti Swarup
