If you regularly follow our blog, you may have noticed that our posts encourage you to submit your suggestions on how to improve Visual Studio in UserVoice. We spend a lot of time reviewing your suggestions and incorporating them into our planning for future releases.
In this post, we’d like to give you an update on what suggestions we have recently marked as Complete. This list comes as an addendum to the list of completed UserVoice suggestions in Visual Studio 2017 that we announced when Visual Studio 2017 released earlier this year. The list has 19 completed suggestions, totaling 1458 votes! Did you make any of these suggestions or vote for them? Now you get your votes back and we look forward to seeing you put them to good use again!
