      • colorize callstack window (readability improvement)

        With the pervasiveness of template based C++ programming, the callstack window is becoming very hard to decipher. At minimum I would like to be able to have the actual function name (not parent class / struct) accented or colored. At most I would like different colors for:

        - metadata (i.e. [Inline Frame])
        - module name
        - namespaces
        - parent classes / structs
        - template arguments
        - parameter information
        - line numbers

        Alternate minimum: add a new column for the "short" function name that is easy to read.

          • Update Consolas Font for High resolution displays

            Please update the Consolas font to be good in high resolution 4K displays. Consolas still look thin on these displays. It should show more thickness on these displays to look more readable and visually pleasing. Currently the readability suffers in 4K, 2K displays.

              • Add support for uneven multiline editing

                Currently in VS if you hold Shift+Alt and navigate with the arrow keys, you can edit multiple lines at a time, but only on the same column of the document. It would be great if you could change this so that you don't have to edit the same column when doing this. Specifically in my scenario, I was editing line ends in a document and this would have made my work much easier.

                • Color loops in code to make tracking easier.

                  Some times I end up with many nested loops (for or if) and the IDE uses the vertical dashed line to track them, but with nested loops (I am looking at 6 levels) I think it would be more beneficial to change colors of those lines.

                    • Test service endpoint without the need of running any release

                      Hello!

                      I would like to propose a functionality on the "Services" section, which allow you to, for example, after adding a new SSH Endpoint, test the connection to check if it works, without needing to suffer problems the first time you release a new release definition which uses this new SSH Endpoint.

                      Kind regards! :D

                        • Add an option to disable code preview tooltips in the "Find All references" window

                          When navigating the results of a "Find All References" action in the references window, a tooltip with code preview shows up when hovering the mouse over a result. This blocks almost the entire view and can be very annoying. Please add a checkbox (or option in the settings) to disable code preview.

                              • Project with old cli not using new cli, shouldn't it ask which to use when FIRST opening project.

                                Why not ask users when first opening a old project that uses older cli than is installed, if you want to use the latest cli with your project.

                                I had to manually edit my .vbproj file to use the latest cli.

                                • Make One Drive accessible in the FolderPicker on the Phone like it is on the Laptop

                                  I have an Application for my private Data. It runs on my Laptop and on
                                  my Windows 10 Phone. It should share the same Data on One Drive.

                                  I make thís on the laptop by Calling the Folder Picker one time if the Data Folder is not in the FutureAccessList and store it there.

                                  But the Folder Picker on the phone does not have this possibility? It does not show OneDrive like it does on the Laptop.

                                  Can you correct this please?

                                  Regards, Markus

                                  • Code Snippets do not persist when running Visual Studio as administrator

                                    I have Visual Studio 2017 set up to always run as administrator in Windows, because I need elevated permissions. However, when I choose a folder for snippets in the Code Snippets Manager (Tools > Code Snippets Manager > Add...) Visual Studio does not remember the snippets that I choose when running this way after restarting. Every time I restart Visual Studio 2017, I have to choose my snippets folder again. Note that I called this folder "Snippets", but the name is probably not relevant. Regardless of whether Visual Studio runs as administrator or not, it should remember the snippets folders…

                                    • Call Stack window improperly truncates stack when StackOverflowException

                                      When debugging a stack overflow, the Call Stack window displays many frames from the top of the stack, then stops with "The maximum number of stack frames supported by Visual Studio has been exceeded."

                                      Instead, it would be better to show multiple frames from the top, then elide as many frames as needed, then show multiple frames from the bottom.

                                      Here's a concrete motivation: when running a number of tests and one of them overflows, the stack doesn't help to see which test is causing the problem.

                                      • Give VS installer a check for updates command

                                        Currently the VS installer only presents updates after a running VS instance has presented a notification to update the version.
                                        Installer should be able to check 4 updates by itself.
