Hi, my name is Jonathan Effrat, and I'm a PM with VS Core IDE currently redesigning the tab model used to switch between all your open files (that row of tabs which sits above the editor, including the little dropdown list and close buttons). I really would like to get feedback from all you Whidbey users out there to see what you think of the current Whidbey file tab model and what frustrations you have with it that we need to address.
It would be great if you could rate how much you agree or disagree with the following statements on a scale of 1 (strongly disagree) to 10 (strongly agree). Any anecdotes would also be helpful.
A. I wish there was an easier way to switch between related files (e.g. .cpp & .h, files you specify as related, etc.).
B. I wish there was an easier way to switch between related views (e.g. code & design, etc.).
C. I wish related files (e.g. .cpp & .h, or files you manually specify as related) were visually grouped together.
D. I wish related views (e.g. code & design) were visually grouped together.
E. "Important" tabs often fall off the row and it's a nuisance to get the tab back.
F. I wish the current document's state (e.g. source control related) was more prominently displayed.
G. It's important that I can see two views of the same file (e.g. code & design) side-by-side.
Please also tell me what language(s) you use most and comment on anything else that bothers you with the current tab system. Thanks a lot!
