      Hello everyone and thank you for the feedback. We are actively investigating ways to improve how Visual Studio handles project content. This suggestion falls into that category. Unfortunately, we will not be able to address this feedback for the Visual Studio 2015 release. We will update the community when our plans in this area have gained more clarity.

      Will Buik,
      Visual Studio – VS IDE Project and Build Team

      Fix this instead of adding tooling for a language, library, third party build tool used by less than 3% of the VS user base.

      Silly considering this is a standard feature in Linux/Unix based development tool systems for over 20 years.

      1. Enumerate the API needed by VS when dealing with project files
      2. Send it out for request for proposals
      3. Select a vendor to do implementation, including non-Windows operating systems
      4. Put it into VS 2017

      Avoids VS becoming a can do everything but needs weeks to get configured product (eclipse)

        This happens many times in VS. Essentially, XML/HTML/XAML based elements are reformatted without regard to their content. XAML will be reformatted to have adjacent controls on a window on many extra lines in the XAML file.

        This makes comparing one control to another much harder. Consider a dialog with 4 text boxes next to one another with only the background color different between them. One would like to vertically scan the XAML settings for each text box one setting at a time to see that they are all the same except for the background color.

        This happens in .NET C# .config files, xaml, html, ...
