Visual Studio’s new Productivity Power Tools 2013 feature lets you make better use of your vertical real estate

An update to Productivity Power Tools 2013 on the Visual Studio Gallery is now available, and includes a new feature called syntactic line compression. With it, you can make better use of your screen’s vertical real estate, writes Mark Wilson-Thomas, a program manager on the Visual Studio team.

Syntactic line compression shrinks lines that contain neither letters nor numbers by 25 percent vertically, allowing more lines to be displayed in the editor. Other lines are not affected.

The update also includes fixes to customer-reported bugs and issues. To read Wilson-Thomas’ entire post, head over to The Visual Studio Blog.
