Today something weird happened, I did an Alt+Shift+F and the cyan prompt below came up. I've never seen it before, so I started looking through the settings on where that was set so I could have it always default to searching the solution, where I found the other issue with the checkbox overlay (https://forums.wholetomato.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=20661).



I'm writing today because the yellow part shows up there partially obscured when the window is narrow. It doesn't have a tooltip to show the content when you hover over it. My general Visual Studio window looks like this:



Minor to be sure. But, there it is. :-)

I'm also having a crash today in Visual Studio 2022 when I do anything involving VAX, such as Alt+Shift+F on some symbol, or attempting to bring up the VAX Options window. Not sure the cause there.

Find References Results trying to word wrap when the window is very small is a known problem that is on our list:

case=146058

A crash though, that is a different matter. An obvious first test, try disabling VA and see if this makes any difference. The fact that it happens on bringing up the VA options dialog is a concern though.

Have you tried rebooting? I am wondering if you could be running short on some form of resources. It seems really unlikely, but should be a quick and simple test to start with, depending on how many programs you have open and running.

Next day, I went in to a solution in Visual Studio 2022, and VA reparsed everything at startup without me telling it to do so.

Everything VA-related seems to work. Menu, Alt+Shift+F, etc.

Seems to have been a fluke. Modern Visual Studio is weird. It's not the rock solid, stable tool we had back in the 2000s. Day to day things break or work differently. Reboot, wait a few days, and it corrects itself. I don't like that.

VA reparsing everything is the expected behaviour after a crash. A crash can leave things in a bad state, and it is possible for a corrupt symbol database to cause problems, so it makes sense from this point of view to also reparse after a crash.

With the regular updates, modern Visual Studio is a moving target. A good thing when they are adding features you need, but it makes it harder to pin some things down.
