Annoying "growing" Find and Replace dialog RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Visual Studio 2010, every time the Find dialog is redisplayed (i.e., Ctrl+F) is grows a little wider. You can see this by pressing Ctrl+F, clicking cancel to close the dialog. Each time the right side of the dialog grows about the width of the close button. It bugs me, because several times per day the dialog scrolls onto my right-most monitor. Has the bug been reported to Microsoft? And if not, how can I report it?

    Thanks.

  • This is a well known bug that we are looking at fixing either with a hotfix or a SP.  We will announce it on the Visual Studio Blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/visualstudio) once it's ready.

  • Is there a way to get the dialog small again?

  • You should be able to resize it.  Are you not seeing this?

  • Simply grab the edge of the dialog and pull it smaller...

    Has this been fixed in either a hotfix or a SP? I haven't seen anything in the blog, but it's crazy that tens of thousands of developers are having to resize a growing dialog several times per day! I

    Thanks,

  • @Steve:  Yes, this (along with a number of other issues) is fixed in the VS 2010 SP1 Beta.  You can download the SP1 Beta here:  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=207130.

  • In addition to what Brittany says it is also available separately as a hotfix. I have it. Can't remember where it is but Scott Guthrie mentioned it in one of his recent blog posts (i.e., a few weeks ago).
