GhostDoc Ate My KeyBinding!

Loaded up Visual Studio today and sure enough good old ctrl+shift+D did not work. It was very sad. In case you find yourself with the same problem follow these steps to get it back!

Tools -> Options -> Environment-> Keyboard see below

Clearly named "Weigelt.GhostDoc.AddIn.DocumentThis"

Hope this saves you a few mins!

Don’t Step Over! Step Into!

OK so Visual Studio SP11 made me very very angry. Apparently they think the default debugging behavior should step over properties and methods calls even if you you tell the debugger to step into a property or method call! I spent about 20 mins trying to figure this out yesterday. Service Pack 1 you owe me 20 mins with interest! Anyway if anyone else is having issues with this here is the fix.

Tools -> Options -> Debugging -> General

I hate you SP1!

I hate you SP1!

Notice the option ‘Step over properties and operators(Managed Only) SP1 checks this by default! Uncheck this and debugging will start stepping into things like it should when asked!

Serenity Now!!!
