Compass menus

Compass menus are an intuitive way for you to execute Visual Studio commands using your mouse. Compass menus are completely customizable and context-dependent, one for the debug view and another for normal view( switchable using Shift key ). The compass menu displays after right clicking in a view and dragging the mouse while holding the right button down. Releasing the mouse executes the selected command.

Custom collapse blocks

This feature enables you to collapse regions of code by surrounding them with //: //-. The description of the collapsed block is the text that follows after //:.

Save & restore collapse states

Collapse states for collapse blocks are saved when a file is closed and restored when a file is open.

Save & restore view state

The view's state( caret position, scroll position ) is saved when a file is closed and restored when a file is open.
