VS 2017: Bring back VS 2015 F1 help pages!

    General discussion

  • Hey MS, You're obviously creating a new .NET documentation for VS 12. But as long as you haven't finished to take over the old content from V11, for heavens sake PLEASE link back to the old online help pages from msdn.microsoft.com. The crappy pages from doc.microsoft.com lack almost every information. No remarks, no examples, I even can't directly search for class properties.

    Just an example: Exception.StackTrace property

    Old: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.exception.stacktrace(v=vs.110).aspx

    New:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/api/system.exception#properties_

    and

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.exception.stacktrace(v=vs.120).aspx

  • Hi pixel42,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    As far as I know, now the VS 2017 Help document has changed and redirect to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/. Compare with VS 2015 Help document (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/) and it includes less information like you found.

    I already reported this feedback to the VS Product Team, please check this: VS 2017 Help documentation includes less information than VS 2015 and you can vote it or add a comment, then we need to waiting for the confirmation information from VS Product Team engineer, and I will update it in here if I get any updates. Now you can continue use the VS 2015 help document and I think they will update and increase those information in the future.

    Sorry for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards,

    Sara
