Hello, according to http://www.wholetomato.com/products/features/rtf.asp, if you copy syntax highlighted text in Visual Studio, only Intellisense colors are used and not the enhanced Visual Assist ones. But the Visual Assist ones were used in VC6. This removes a valuable feature in the modern IDE's, IMHO, and I request you put it back.

I am preparing some documentation that I wanted to paste in RTF syntax-colored text from the IDE and it is showing up rather plain looking.

Thanks,
David

We are considering doing this at some point, but it is fairly tricky in .NET versions due to some technical changes in the IDE:

Thanks for the reply. If it is not feasible to use the Windows clipboard, could you not have a separate VAssist | Export command that would create a .html or .rtf file containing the syntax highlighted text? There's more than one way to skin this cat, it would seem.

Thanks,
David
