    • Add context menu on left side area of the editor to manage breakpoints

      In the left area where breakpoints (the red circles) are visible, if you right mouseclick in this area show a context menu.
      It should not be required to rlight mouse click on a breakpoint, just a right mouse click in the left area should be enough.

      This context menu could for example contain following options:
      "Remove all breakpoints in this file"
      "Remove all in this class"
      "Remove all breakpoints in: namespace/project/solution"

      Other context menu options to Add breakpoints could also be useful.

      In case you right mouse click on a breakpoint add context menu options to edit breakpoint.

      Now you…

      • I love to see Microsoft fulfil the promise they made to support vb.net equally along with c# because I can't make any switch to c#.

        I want to see Visual Basic.net become more powerful like c# in developing of cross platform applications just like c#. Stop forcing us to abandon our legacy language. Microsoft should allow us freedom to use language of our choice which vb.net for everything c# can do.

        • Scroller while debugging large objects

          Would be very helpful, if you add scroller in debugging, when debugging an objects. It is very painful to scroll all over down in large objects.

          • 필터와 실제 폴더 구성을 같게 하면 어떨까요

            프로젝트 내의 필터와 실제 폴더의 구성을 같게 해주는 옵션이 추가 되었으면 좋겠습니다.
            해당 옵션을 설정하면 IDE 내에서 필터를 추가하고 신규 파일을 추가 했을 시, 실제 작업 폴더에 동일하게 반영 되는 것 입니다( 현재는 두개가 다른것으로 알고 있습니다.)

            • Stop debugging in Visual Studio 2015 after the Edge browser is closed

              http://stackoverflow.com/questions/40193759/stop-debugging-in-visual-studio-2015-after-the-browser-is-closed

              If we stop the IE browser, it would stop the VS debugging, but the other browser doesn't support this feature like the Edge, can you add this feature?

                • Not close file if close the solution

                  Like this case here:

                  https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/a76ca779-dbc2-45d5-b58b-5a565a97c249/vs2012-with-ssdt-close-solution-close-opened-sql-tabs?forum=vsdebug

                  If we using file ->Close solution option, it would close all opened files, whether there are a feature which doesn't close the opened files like tables or others.

                  • Allow projects to be upgraded to the latest without backwards compatibility

                    Backwards compatibility between Visual Studio versions is a great feature during transitions, but eventually you reach a point where you want drop support for the older versions. We have quite a few projects that were originally written in 2013, so they still have ToolsVersion="12.0" in the project files. However, since we don't have 2013 installed on the build server, we have to either configure a special parameter (/tv:14.0) in our build definition or manually edit the project files to bring them up to the 2015.

                    I'd like a command to intentionally bring a solution/project forward to the latest version of…

                    • Incorporate the guidelines feature from Productivity Power Tools

                      Incorporate the guidelines feature from Productivity Power Tools - nothing more, nothing less just the way they are will be great.

                      I wouldn't mind any extra features.

                      • Add feature like emacs artist-mode to visual studio IDE

                        See:

                        http://cinsk.github.io//emacs/emacs-artist.html

                        There have been a number of requests to add this kind of feature to Visual Studio, which have been closed:

                        "Add my custom drawing to code section as part of comment because drawings can often be clearer and meaningful to the reader."

                        "Ability to draw next to the code simple shapes to explain code"

                        "add feature to draw monographs in comments to illustrate code idea (save as png in project folder, referenced by a file positions database)"

                        While I think having the ability to seamlessly include line drawings would be better, an artist-mode feature would be a great…

                        • Save Progress tab output to file

                          After running an SSIS package, there may be several errors. It would be helpful to be able to save the progress log output to a text file. This would provide the SSIS developer with the ability to fix multiple errors in one "break-fix" cycle.

                          • Set all break-points to only break on a particular thread ID

                            We have an ASP.NET MVC application with many AJAX call-backs.

                            When debugging, we put in multiple break-points and they're continually being hit by threads I'm not currently interested in.

                            What would be really useful would be to hit a break-point, and then have available a button that would make ALL break-points active for just that Thread ID.

                            This button could toggle so that all break-points are then active for every Thread.

                                  • As a TFS Agile Template user, I want to be able to view description and acceptance criteria for a story side by side

                                    Currently the Scrum template allows you to view story description and acceptance criteria at the same time in side by side windows. This can be done with customization but we would like to see this as a supported standard feature of the Agile Template.

                                    • Add command/hotkey for completion list navigation

                                      When a completion pops up, the only way to move the completion candidate is using arrow keys.

                                      Example:
                                      After input `Console.WL`, the intellisense window suggests me with `WindowLeft` selected, with `WriteLine` below it.

                                      If I want to tab `WriteLine` out, I may have to input more like `Console.WLin` or use DOWN key to select `WriteLine`.

                                      Suggestion:
                                      It would be great if we can have some hotkey or command to navigate through the completion popup window.
                                      Just like what `Ctrl-N` in vim dose [1].

                                      So in the example above, I can use some hotkey to select the `WriteLine` without have to…

                                      • show number of class references at CSS

                                        Similar to how number of references (with popup to jump to one) is shown at C# etc., it would be nice if class references in CSS could show such a popup. I don't mean for the whole CSS rule, just for the .xx symbol, would allow to jump in that CSS and in HTML/ASPX/etc. where that CSS class is references.

                                        Maybe alternative / more powerful would be to do it for CSS rules and show all places where they apply, but that would be much harder.

                                        btw, it is very silly to type in a suggestion here, then press [f]…

                                        • Printing Workitems on Team Foundation Server 2015

                                          Hi,

                                          We have an on-premise deployment of Team Foundation Server 2015. I don't see a functionality to print work-items in TFS.
                                          I understand it's a bit lousy requirement (keeping in mind all the elements of a work-item viz. History, Attachments, Links, etc.), but I believe, sequentially everything can be printed.
                                          or,
                                          user can be given option to select what all to be printed apart from the basic details of the work item.
                                          Thanks
                                          Yogesh
