Visual Studio Power Tools

If you’re a fan of tools like I am then you’ll appreciate the wonder of the Visual Studio 2010 Productivity Power Tools! They’ve been out for a while but I just got around to installing them. So far I’m loving:

  1. HTML Copy. Now when I copy code from Visual Studio into other applications (like OneNote) the syntax coloring is preserved! Yippee!!
  2. Column Guides. I have mine set at 120 since that’s the recommended line length on my current team. Great to have a visual indicator of this! Just move the cursor to column 120, right click –> Guidelines –> Add Guideline and it’s there.
  3. CTRL+Click to go to definition.
