When I activate "Ask Copilot" from the GitHub Copilot Chat Extension in the C++ text editor, the prompt appears but I can not get the focus to enter text into the chat or press the send button.



When I disable the Visual Assist Extension in "Manage Extensions", Copilot works as expected.



Using "Enable/Disable Visual Assist" from the VAssistX menu does not have the same effect.

It would be great if I could use VA and Copilot at the same time.

Used versions:
Visual Studio Enterprise 2022 (64-bit) 17.8.3
Visual Assist 10.9.2508.0
GitHub Copilot 1.139.0.0
GitHub Copilot Chat 0.1.1986.61475

This is down as a high priority bug, but until one of our developers has dug into this a bit, we won't know how easy it is to fix. We can hope it won't be to difficult though.

Thank you for the update, we are currently looking into this, but so far nothing to report. It certainly looks like an interaction problem with VA, so we may well need a fix from VA.

Was just about to report this issue. Had already a thread opened on Microsoft. Hope that gets fixed asap.

btw: its not only C++ but also C# editor windows. In other types, like JSON or txt files, it works as expected.

Do you have VA enabled in the other file types, where the Copilot works correctly? I am assuming you don't, but would like to confirm that assumption, just in case there is some strange file specific effect at work here.

Thank you, another data point proving our interaction with Copilot is the problem. It seems confirmed, but I do like to be sure

One more thing: this worked with the previous VA version and the previous Copilot version.

Ah... I didn't know that! Thank you for that information. Someone else confirmed the bug before I finished getting a test case set up, since I don't personally have a Copilot account, so spent a certain amount of time just trying to get something set up before I could test anything.

I will add a note to the case about this, knowing it is a regression may well help.

It would be great if we would not have to wait for another month until a fix is available.

We are working on a fix for this, and are aiming to have this fixed in the next release of VA.
