Belated Feature Request

I just purchased an image library called "Atalasoft" that contains a lot of
great imaging stuff. Anyway, it has a lot of namespaces. So as I was going
through the list of namespaces and adding them using the 'using' directives,
I suddenly thought "Wow. It would be awsome to make a store of the
namespaces I continually use in my programs and just be able to add them in
all at once".

Granted notepad solves this just fine, but hey, it's another cool feature to
list, right!?

I think the answer is CtrlC, CtrlV:)

all at once".

What is needed is a file template that inserts appropriate usings. I think,
this could be achieved at present by defining your own live template and
running it on every newly created empty file.

Doesn't VS allow custom file templates?

Not sure it allows custom file templates,
but you definitely can edit embedded templates.

VS Does not allow custom templates unless you go and hack the template
folders, which isn't very safe in my opinion. Notepad solved the problem
because I just copied all the namespaces I wanted into a Notepad file and
could copy and paste them. It did not really 'speed' things up at all, it
just is nice to be able to add all my namespaces easily. That's all.

isn't it easier to use live templates?

go:
resharper >> options >> Live Templates.
>> click New

Then in the template edit window, fill in for Abbrevation: "MyUsings"
In Description field fill in : "My notepad usings" (or anything else)
Than paste your notepad stuff into big text field, and you are done.
next time, just use ctrl-j, and select MyUsings from the list..
hth
-j
