I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

    • Make changing command line simple

      Changing command line option needs me to open project properties and set command line using interaction with mouse.
      I deal with app which uses command line heavily.
      It would be great to have immediate/command window shortcut to change command/command line we want to use for debugging.

      • Will be good if each build & deploy can also have a bug log record & tracking associated

        Bug tracking associated with each build & deployed version , helps in monitoring

        • In the Git changes form, use autocomplete to assist with commenting

          When typing the comment for a Git commit, it is useful to have AutoComplete or Intellisense to assist with typing.

          It would be even more useful if VS could autopopulate with a logical summary e.g. "Rename this to that"

          • Local version management / Save current situation

            Currently I barely start experimenting with existing code because if it doesn't work I have to put it all back. If I could press a button that would make Visual Studio save all the changes I make so I could restore everything to how it was before I started the experiment I would do it way more often and save allot of time.

            I tried to create an extension for this, but It didn't really work out because events weren't firing or firing too late.

                • Shifting item in SSRS when resizing a control

                  When increasing the height of a control, it would be nice if there was a way to shift everything below it down as the control is resized. Perhaps holding down the Shift key while resizing the height of a control would also move everything below it correspondingly.

                    • Adding context menu to Menu options for toolbars and customizable icons to toolbars

                      .- When adding commands to a toolbar it would be great to right click a menu option in the main menus, and choose an "add to current toolbar" option from a context menu. Reason: there are menu options which you think you are going to use often and the shortcuts are not easily memorized.

                      .- When customizing toolbar commands it would be great to assign icons to them from a general icon list. This way the command wouldn't take too much space in the toolbar, and the description would be part of the tooltip when you hoover the mouse over…

                        • Make the VS2015 main window part of window layout

                          I set my vs2015 main window to my desired size and location. I drag my favorite tool windows to where I like them and I save the window layout. This is all fine and dandy.
                          When I rearrange windows for some reason and press Ctrl-Alt-1 to reset everything my tool windows go where they should but the main window does not - could that be fixed - or am I doing something wrong?
                          Apart from that - I LOVE VS2015!

                              • Environment Variables -> Path on installation exceeding max length

                                Visual Studio adds folders to the Environment Variables -> Path without regard to the max size for the Path. The reason I highlight this here is with Visual Studio and SQL Server, it is common for developers to have multiple versions and hence much greater exposure to Path corruption due to it being too long.

                                Some programs are known to clear the Path on install when it is too long - not something you want to find out the hard way!

                                It would be better if VS either reduced dependence on adding lots of items to the Path OR it…

                                • Debug for multiple devices at the same time

                                  Upgrade VS to debug on multiple devices at the same type when coding using Xamarin. Must be able to open multiple copies of VS using the same solution file, then select different target devices.It will be fine to only be able to make modifications to source code once all projects debugging is stopped.

                                  Currently, to achieve the same I need to make multiple copies of the project, then run each one of them separately. It becomes a config management nightmare, and it also takes quite a while to do the copying.

                                    • default properties

                                      Add default properties as per VB e.g.

                                      var IsDirty = new IsDirtyClass();
                                      IsDirty = true;
                                      IsDirty.IsNeedForServerSync = false;

                                        • Embed the "Give Feedback" pop-up in the Visual Studio start page

                                          I think it would be better to embed the "Give Feedback" pop-up that sometimes appears on startup in the start page, so that it doesn't get in the way of me trying to use Visual Studio and so that it acts as more of a "Soft Reminder" than a slightly annoying one.
