Hi Whole Tomato team,

I really like Visual Assist and especially the Source Links feature.

Source Links currently only works in source code files.
It would be fantastic, if it could also work in text (.txt) files,
because most projects have a changes.txt or .md (markdown) file with references to a ticket system.

That would be great, if you could make this work.
best regards, Stefan

This is already available, but you do need to edit a registry key to turn on this feature. The registry key is explained here:

just make sure to close all instances of the IDE before editing the registry key, since VA saves out its settings on exit, so any changes you make will be overwritten otherwise.
