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".

      • put dragdrop support back into Visual Studio menu customization

        I can no longer import my menu customization from VS2010 (created in VS2008!) into the latest release, VS2015RC. Customization support has been terrible since 2010, please redesign and add back dragdrop support.

              • Improve the download format/style for VS2013

                How about:
                - Clearly showing the size of the download before it starts(if I'd known the download to try VS2013 was over 8 gigs I'd have taken the express version).
                - Allowing users to choose which modules they want to download (Windows phone? maybe i'll get that later, or never).
                - Allowing the download to be paused (the only option is cancel)
                - Showing a percentage completed, or a list of what has to be downloaded, or anything informative rather than that blue bar and the silly dots.
                -
                -

                • Allow a user to set a default size for Rich Text Fields

                  When your team has a lot of custom fields, the "Steps to Recreate" window starts getting exceedingly small. It would be great if a user had the option to choose what amount of real estate the Rich Text fields get, and consequently the ability to scroll the custom fields at the top of the window,

                  • Support for operator -> in the debugger (C++)

                    Working with smart pointer classes in the debugger can be painful. For example, the following won't work:

                    m_item->m_name

                    It would be nice if there was a natvis feature that would enable this. Maybe it would look something like this:

                    <Type Name="std::unique_ptr&lt;*&gt;">
                    <Methods>
                    <Item Name="operator-&gt;">m_pointer</FunctionItem>
                    </Methods>
                    </Type>

                    • Line across page/file below function to separate function code blocks

                      In VB.Net we get a line that separates method code blocks. I like that.
                      Then I jump to js and I have to mentally work harder to discern function block separation.

                        • Provide ability to select specific text to copy from Test Output window

                          Even though I can right click in the Test Output window and select "Copy all" from the Test Output window today, I cannot highlight and select a specific section of text from the Test Output window.

                          It would be great if I can copy/highlight a specific set or section of text from the Test Output window especially if I am writing output via the TestContext property or using a Console.WriteLine.

                          • Search option in Entity Data Model

                            Hi Team,

                            In the Entity Data Model Wizard, the second step shows the list of available database objects viz. Tables/Views/Stored Procedures and user can select one or more from the list of object. While working on database with large number of objects it’s very difficult to scroll-down will it be possible to have quick search option to find the specific object.

                            Thanks
                            Abhijeet Balla

                                  Although potentially one can do a lot of things with the animation system, most of the time they tend to look quite choppy compared to Win 8. Fast and fluid is the Mantra isn't it. ;-)

                                  • Allow naming of sln/proj files for Unity VS

                                    We have UnityVS* set in our p4ignore file to prevent users from checking in the UnityVS folder after installing as some people have problems with it, but we'd like to be able to check in the solution and project files which have the same naming convention...Would be nice to be able to set the name of the solution/project files.

                                    • Coded UI - switch datasource to TestMethods datasource if referred to by separate test method with own datasource

                                      The scenario I have is I want a Test Method which finds credentials from a credentials csv file as its datasource and assigns them to variables. It then calls a Login Test Method which uses the details to log in and then uses its own datasource to enter data into the application. This currently does not work as it retains the first datasource which is very inflexible!

                                      • Resolve HAXM / Hyper-V conflict

                                        Resolve the HAXM <--/--> Hyper-V conflict, so that Android development with the new Android Emulator feature can be done with an accelerated native VM instead of emulated which is slow.

                                        • Make Ionic a full member for apps

                                          When making cross-platform apps Ionic is a great tool. It would be great to use it's functionality right from Visual Studio without having to have a commandline open to run Ionic commands.
