After stepping in and out of many functions, the Debug Events window doesn't show any functions to filter out. Thus I can't filter any functions.

Using VS 2019. C++, C++/CLI, C#, native code and managed (.net framework).

Native-only debugging the events are captured.
Mixed-mode debugging does not work.
Managed-only debugging does not work.

The first line of the description of this feature, at https://docs.wholetomato.com/default.asp?W506 says:

The VA Step Filter is a tool window of Visual Assist that let you automatically step over methods when using the native C/C++ debugger.

the "native" bit is the key part here. We are tying into a feature of the native C/C++ debugger to make the step filter work. We are considering adding managed C++:


and C# support:


but this isn't as straight forward as we might like, so I am not sure when we will be able to get this working.
