Any chance of getting to turn the "Surround selection on / * ( { and #" option on/off per surround-type? I love the pants off automatic () and {}, but I never intentionally use the others, and often unintentionally activate them, such as when I highlight, say, "foo", and start typing in "*bar" to replace it.

I have put a feature request in for this, to see what our developers make of this:

case=73487

We try to limit the number of options in VA, but you do have a good point here.

For now, since you are not using / and *, have you considered turning off surround selection in VA's options dialog and instead using a couple of basic VA Snippets to surround with {} and () ? The snippet bodies:

( $selected$ )

{
    $selected$
}

should do what you want, and you can bind a keyboard shortcut to the command VAssistX.VaSnippetInsert to make it quick and easy to trigger and access these shortcuts.

case=73487 is implemented in build 1940 and is controlled via the following registry setting:

HKCU \\ Software \\ Whole Tomato \\ Visual Assist X \\ VANet10 \\ SurroundSelectionCharList

Replace "VANet10" with "VANet11" for Visual Studio 2012
Replace "VANet10" with "VANet9" for Visual Studio 2008
Replace "VANet10" with "VANet8" for Visual Studio 2005
Replace "VANet10" with "VANet" for Visual Studio 2003
Replace "VANet10" with "VA6" for Visual C++ 6

The default characters are '/*{#( . If you delete the registry value, it will be recreated with these characters the next time Visual Studio is cycled. Removing a character from the list suppresses Surround With for that character. Adding non-default characters to the list has no effect.
