      As explained in this blog post (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/10/08/how-we-use-user-voice-to-make-a-better-product.aspx), we had updated the status of this suggestion to “Under Review” to let you know we are tracking it on our backlog. To better indicate which one we are actively working on or which ones are on our 6-month plan, we introduced the states “Started” and “Planned”. The goal is to give an update on in progress suggestions at least every 3 months. This suggestion is still on our backlog, but they are not part of the 6-month plan.

      Gyula Solution Explorer is not necessarily a physical representation of the disk structure. This is very common so Solution Explorer could have a different organisation for files. Additionally you can have linked files (same physical file in multiple projects) for example. There are lots of reasons why this would be extremely handy.

        Silverlight is almost certainly dead. IE's replacement Edge does not support Silverlight at all. Chrome has NPAPI disabled by default and will remove it altogether by end of year (Silverlight and Java applets require NPAPI support in your browser). Firefox is sure to follow suit in due course. That means existing Silverlight has a pretty short future from now.

                I wanted to update the status to make sure you know that we hear you. This isn’t straightforward to deliver for obvious reasons: Visual Studio installs a disparate variety of tools, runtimes and SDKs, many of which come from third parties or other parts of Microsoft. We recognize that developers would love to see something lighter and while we have nothing new to announce at this stage, we are spending a lot of time thinking about how we can improve Visual Studio installation.

                Thanks for the feedback!

                    Rest assured, we’re not deliberately ignoring the bug. Far from it, in fact. The issues with XDesProc are tricky, as I’m sure you’d understand. While the reliability is getting better and we’re seeing a decrease in reported issues, we’re still making some large steps to improve it further. Naturally, if you’ve got any details on what you were doing when XDesProc caused issues, we’d love to hear them and make sure that our efforts address the issues. You can report these issues using the “Report a problem” feature on the Help menu in Visual Studio, and also make sure that you’ve configured Visual Studio to send us crash reports (On the Help menu, select Settings under Send Feedback)

                    In the meantime, I can lay your fears to rest and assure you that we’ve redoubled our efforts to make the XAML designer the best designer anywhere.

                    Yes this is a big thorn in WPF productivity.

                      Yes was just discussing with a colleague. Seems like such a simple thing - it's a bit surprising that is missing.

                          "This applies to all project xml files, but in particular to SLN & RESX"

                          Indeed. There really should be a base ordering to components in resx, XML in anything generated by VS. In a multi-developer environment, a designer change that scrambles the designer contents makes the designer very difficult to use. Wastes hours every single merge.

                            Workaround: Find/replace in files can be used to do this.

                              You have the array functions:

                              Is there something outside those?

                              Really not sure what you are gaining by this. What's wrong with getting an array?
