Anyone know of any plugins/addins to allow Ctrl + F to work in the Workflow Designer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings!

    It was suggested I post in this forum regarding my quandary re: navigating large workflows from the GUI:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/tfsbuild/thread/6169274b-9ae7-4b44-ab56-e7a437713801

    It appears that Ctrl+F is not supported in the Workflow Designer out of the box; just wanted to know if anyone is aware of any VS plugins, addons, or tricks that could quickly let us jump to the desired section of the workflow without constantly working in Expand All mode or memorizing Sequence names (the latter of which seems to be the inevitable as we make our customizations more complex).

    Thanks much!

  • Hi,

    Currently, the WF4 designer doesn't support CTRL+F to find an activity in the designer. other than that, you can find activities in the xaml view.

    I don't know if there is a CTRL+F plug-in for WF4, however the following article could be helpful to you:

    We may have this feature in the next version WF4.5.
