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

          • Downloaded NuGet updates should be added to webmatrix core

            i usually get to update NuGet's for different sites at one time or another. i think the latest updated files should be downloaded into webmatrix in such a way that they'll overwrite previous updates only (so as not tamper with the templates that came with the installation) but the new updates should be available in webmatix in case someone wants to update the same NuGet in another project (that is if a newer update isn't already available which would take priority over the local update).

            Using the NuGet interface isn't the most convenient task for me. Its sort of slow…
