I just killed and restarted VS a couple times because I thought VA deadlocked or something when I opened the snippet dialog. Turns out I just couldn't see the (modal!) dialog. When I hit Win+<Left Arrow> the dialog would toggle between left half of the screen, right half, and invisible. Anyways, invisible modal dialogs are evil.

I recently stopped using my second monitor. I probably had the dialog on the second display. Might be a Windows 7 bug though.

Workaround is to delete following key from registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Whole Tomato\\Visual Assist X\\VATE\\Autotext Dialog\\WindowPlacement

Note that key must be deleted before dialog is opened.
This setting is then recreated with new position when dialog closes.

Well, the problem is that you don't see anything. :) I didn't even realize that the dialog was there, I thought VS or VA was stuck initializing it.

Thank you for the fix.

Apologies for this. This should have been fixed internally, and the fix should appear in the next build:

case=83162

For now, if you see something like this happen again, Escape should fix the problem.
