    • Wish Visual Studio supports for Python projects with GTK / GObject packages.

      Some of the packages that VS 2017 PIP manages to find could not be compiled (missing file, etc..). This will promote porting more open source apps to windows.

        • Create a SDK Manager in Visual Studio

          I have installed at least one Windows SDK but it is difficult to find it. I tried to find it by installing it again but the setup just says it is already installed but not where it is installed. It would help if VS had a tool for installing and listing installed Windows SDKs. Android does it for Android, right? Except the Android tool is separate from VS of course. The Windows SDK tool could be separate from VS but it seems totally appropriate for it to be another of many tools in VS.

          • android sdk

            Please rename the Android SDK Manager from "SDK Manager" to "Android SDK Manager" so that when I use the Start menu to search for SDKs I don't execute the Android SDK Manager when I want a Windows SDK.

                  • allow disabling of display scaling

                    Allow the user to disable high dpi scaling while using Visual Studio by changing a setting in "Tools | Options...," similar to the way it can be disabled in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. Display scaling works well for most applications, but with the number of windows that must be open at one time in Visual Studio, space is too valuable to allow for scaling.

                    • .NET Core runtime CLI should read assembly metadata

                      When I create an assembly using .NET Standard/Core I am able to specify metadata like a ProductName or Version. I should be able to read these properties later using the 'dotnet' runtime CLI on all supported platforms. This should be secure, and allow reading assembly metadata without actually loading code or instantiating the assembly.

                      For example, a command like 'dotnet inspect my.dll' could return all available metadata in an assembly, including version info, product/author name, architecture, etc. and a narrower command like 'dotnet inspect --version my.dll' or 'dotnet inspect -a:<attributeName> my.dll' could read and return a single value.

                      • Go back to the old way of being able to install the software from an ISO.

                        Make an ISO available for VS Professional. Makes it a lot easier for organisations like ourselves where users cannot download software directly.

                        • Syntax Highlighting - Ability to Configure the "unused" dimming feature

                          In 2015 and later version a feature was added that detected "unused" code. Like a using statement that doesn't have any types referenced from it, or a class with a public method that is never called.
                          These things maintain the same color syntax highlight as all the others, but their luminosity is dimmed slightly, as an added indicator that they are "unused".
                          I would prefer this to be a configurable feature. The feature is awesome, but the dimming of the luminosity makes reading the code harder, especially when using the dark theme and/or custom color schemes.
                          Instead allow for a…

                          • Open containing folder when right click on solution explorer

                            When we click on a tab it has "Open Containing Folder".
                            It would be great if we had the same thing for files in solution explorer.
                            Currently in solution explorer it only has this option only for folders and not for files.

                            • Isolate Python project user settings to a separate file

                              Currently all settings for Python project are placed in *.pyproj file. There are also user settings (e.g. debug settings) which can be changed rapidly be each user working on the same project. If used in a versioning system (like svn, git, ...) there is a problem of unwanted changes.

                              Please separate user settings to *.pyproj.user file so that the project file can be easily used in versioning systems while user settings file will be excluded like it is common with other project types (e.g. vcxproj).

                                  • Prompt to open a project for double clicking a *.csproj file in pending changes/team explorer rather than closing current solution silently.

                                    When you are looking over pending changes, you may double click a csproj file to see what has happened. If you are currently in a rather large solution, it will close the current solution without prompting/warning and open this project. Reopening the solution could take several minutes and any unit tests that had been running are now lost, so this simple mistake of double clicking rather than right clicking to compare changes has lost you a sizable chunk of your development time.
