    • To simplify the user interface

      I would guess if I read all the earlier feedback, there would be a "complaint" already for this.

      When your create a new project (PHP application for example) it is ficking hard to create a new file to it. Personally I not want the offered application frameworks that the application could offer for me. I'd rather extend something that is available and I could choose what it is. Even it would not be "mainstream"

      Please, make the new file creation lot lot easier (includes making folders easier)

      • Add Zend Framework in Webmatrix 2 will be very very usefull...

        Add the Zend Framework (and others) will be a very good think for us and will win a lot of time.

        Does someone knowns how can I add this Framework myself without passthrough Webmatric Gallery?

        • Is there a way to change Font in the Themes

          It would be very useful if there would be a way to change a Font Type used by Extensions.

                  • Allow editing a single file without opening the previous site

                    I have checked the option that "do not show me startup screen".

                    Now If I right click on file and open them in webmatrix then this also open my last opened project.

                    another issue : if I closed the website (project as in this explanation)
                    and go back to explore and open the file in webmatrix again then I can see that open project again and the file is opened in editor ( which I try to open)

                    Can you make a feature like Visual studio that we are able to open the file in webmatrix and as they show…

                        Interesting idea – have you also tried the F11 shortcut to maximize/minimize the workspace?

                      • Don't see your idea?
