I've been using VS since it was called Visual Interdev when it was introduced to the UK in 1997 (I was at the launch event in London). I use it full time for web development. Then it was VB, then WebForms (big mistake) and now C# and Razor. The one thing that's REALLY hacked me off with it, despite bringing it up time and time again with MS is the fact you cannot totally switch off code formatting. It is definitely the case that I expend more key strokes correcting it's auto-formatting than I do writing code. It's such a pity. I think it's probably to do with the fact that Razor files contain multiple languages (HTML, C#, JS and poss CSS). Even simply cutting and pasting a piece of SASS, or JS or C# in file ends up with the whole file reformatted. Luckily Ctrl+z corrects it and then you can do what you wanted originally with it.

I think MS assume we all write code from scratch so their formatting is fine. But if you're constantly dipping in and out of loads of projects from all over the place, all with different formatting then you want to do it yourself. If any MS devs are reading this, PLEASE SORT THIS OUT. I have no respect for people that just rush onto the next eye-catcher that(let's be honest) hardly anyone uses, when you don't sort the basics out that effects everybody.

I feel better now Wink | ;)
