Document Well 2010 Plus: Hidden Options

[update 7/20/2010]: Updated changes made for version 10.0.10710.22 of the Pro Power Tools. Please take a look at the changelog.

A couple of posts ago I announced the availability of Document Well 2010 Plus as part of the Visual Studio 2010 Pro Power Tools. Since then we have received lots of feedback about our extension, for which I am very grateful. User feedback has centered around two main points:

1. There should be an option to hide the pin button

2. When using custom colors for tabs, the selected tab is sometimes not clearly distinguishable

Fortunately, the extension has a couple of hidden options that will let you alleviate these two points, as well as others that hopefully will help you in your daily work. During development of the extension we experimented internally with many different options for the features available in the extension. For the first release it was decided that exposing all options could be confusing and overwhelming to our users, and so the options dialog UI was simplified. You will find here all options that were hidden due to this simplification. I encourage you to try them out and let us know if you find them useful or not.

o Pin button visible in unpinned tabs
