          • Open file from #load directive

            In C/C++ files, I can right click on #include directive and open the included file.

            Enable the same in F# scripts.

            • Allow renaming of self reference for implementing interface

              When implementing an interface, the self reference is declared as "x". I would like to have a configuration option where this can be changed (I prefer my self reference to be "this" rather than "x").

              • F12 Navigate to Source

                Along the same lines as Ref12 and ReSharper's Navigate to Sources from Symbol Files, it would be great to pull up the actual source code in Visual Studio when you hit F12 if the pdb is present and it is source linked.

                I'm currently working on part of the code needed for this in SourceLink. https://github.com/ctaggart/SourceLink/issues/35

                  It still doesn't work in dark theme. It turn the file into white background which is not appropriated for dark theme.

                    Highlight all references is great.
                    Can we then press tab to go to the next reference.
                    Shift tab to go to the previous.

                        • Generate stubs for record types

                          When I'm initializing a record, I'm always like this:

                          let record = { ... // Errr... what are the names of the fields already??

                          I'd like a way to have some autocompletion or quick action that asks a record type and then generates the record fields.

                          • Resolve unopend namespace or module

                            In C# ,there is refactor menu to resolve undefined using namespace.
                            I wanna this feature in F# too.
                            ReSharper evolved this feature by suggesting namespace just above the code which causes missing namespace.
                            I think this style is better than VS's one.

                                  • Syntax highlight printfn formatters

                                    printfn "Some %d value" 3

                                    I'd like to see highlighting for '%d' above. Should be relatively easy to implement, and shouldn't be much of a burden performance-wise.

                                    An implementation should probably also provide for the swift-like syntax, or at least be easily extendable: https://visualfsharp.codeplex.com/SourceControl/network/forks/vladima/primary/contribution/7063

                                    printf "New %(sy) here"

                                      • do nothing when format result is broken

                                        We sometimes get uncompilable code when we use the feature of source code formatting.

                                        I think we can choose continue or undo when the result is broken.
