Want to print your line numbers with your code?  Don't worry!  You can do it by just checking the "Include line numbers" option in the Print Dialog:


  • My preference: Info at top and as follows:

    Versions Supported:  2005, 2008, 2010

                                 Default       C#2005      C++6

  • cool.  thanks for the feedback Stefan :)

    keep your comments coming folks this is your chance to decide how these things should look and I will be going back to retro fit all the tips with the new format so I want to make sure it adds value to everyone.


  • Question: We printed some stuff out today for a code review, but the only thing colorized were the line numbers (VS2010 RC). The code was nicely coloured on-screen, both F# and SQL source. Is this a known limitation or did we do something wrong when printing?

  • I like the verswion supported info (although going forward I want to adopt VS2010 as soon as I can get client s to accept it) and the bottom is fine :)


  • Drat I still can't tpye! :(
