VSCode: look, when I Alt-F-S to save the file, put the cursor back on the document. I do not want to have to click on the document.
VSCode: Page up and down should move the document up and down a full screen page. Don't just move the cursor first to the top or bottom of the page.
VSCode: Shift up/down arrows. For f***cks sake, if I scroll past where the cursor is, so the cursor goes "off screen", move the cursor to top or bottom of the screen. Otherwise, shift up/down followed by up/down takes me back to wherever the cursor was when it scrolled off the screen.
Sublime: Your bookmarks suck.
Sublime: WTF happened to performance? All of a sudden everything is dog slow, which is why I switched to that POC VSCode.

I think I'm just going to use VS 2017. You obviously get what you pay for.
I used Sharp Develop until now and was very happy with it. Now that it is dead, I will sooner forget that I ever heard of .Net than to crawl back to Mickeysoft. C++ is better for what I like to do anyway.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
The VSC one that keeps getting me, it's 50% really useful and 50% utterly annoying, is that when you close a file and it moves to another tab, it also moves back to that file in the explorer. Sometimes that's very convenient, and other times it's a PITA because you closed that file in order to open another one right there at the same spot.
And I guess another that is in the same 50/50% category is the single vs. double click open. It can be really convenient if you are just going through a bunch of files one at a time. But inevitably I get myself to some place I need to be, and then go to open another file and forget I only single clicked the first one and it gets closed.
But, on the whole, I've started getting used to it for my C++ work.
Paying for VS gives you a version that does very little more than the free Community edition.

Heh to me, ctrl-s is move cursor left one character position. I'm an old fart who used WordStar in the CP/M days and I really like the WordStar cursor control movements. Basically, all my editors and IDE's (even Microsoft Word or Libre Office) use WordStar control sequences (or appear to!). I have an AutoHotKey script that changes my WordStar control sequences into the appropriate keystrokes for particular editor/IDE I'm using at the time. I also use and old ZiffDavis utility (TradeKeys) to make the Cap Locks into the control key.
Before I retired, it was quite funny watching an IT guys trying to use notepad when they had to mess with my machine.
