  1. ISE Preview, the ISE Alias, and the PsEdit Function

    In the PowerShell ISE Preview, the "ise" alias should not launch a new instance of the old powershell_ise.exe, it should open the script given to it as an argument in a new tab in the currently-running host ISE process (just the like psEdit function does).

    Personally, I prefer to open scripts into new tabs using "ise" instead of "psedit" because it is shorter (and also a habit burned in from years of use). When the new PowerShell ISE is released later this year, please make "ise" an alias for the psEdit function, or a function in its own right, or…

  2. Provide a way to set the display name for a "PowerShell tab"

    This request comes from an internal team. The ask is to have an action to set a name for a "PowerShell tab" so that it's clear what each tab's session is being used for.

  4. PowerShell ISE - Pane breakout for multi monitor use

    Votes from Connect: 23

    Handle: FuriouS76
    Site Name: PowerShell
    Feedback ID: 698161


    Frequency: Always Happens
    Regression: Yes, this happens in all previous versions

    Problem Description:
    I have tried many of the IDE/ISE options out there and prefer Windows ISE. The one feature I would like to see is the ability to undock or break out each pane across multiple monitors. This would allow users in multi-monitor setups to configure the ISE in an ideal setup that would allow faster coding / debugging.

    Thanks,
    Kirk Hammond.

    This is a very difficult thing to implement, it could potentially break many of the add-ons, and could introduce some very confusing UI elements.

    That said, we’re interested to get more ideas from you for how something like this might work. Feel free to post your comments below.

    Thanks,

  5. Clean up formatting

    As many of us share and use snippets from other sources, including the Internet, colleagues etc. sometimes their formatting is destroyed in the copy/paste process or is already destroyed due to a change in a website template for example.
    While it's a "nice to have" feature, being able to clean up the formatting (using proper indentation, parentheses spacing etc.) for selected blocks of code would get the code in to a more readable format more quickly.

    While everyone formats their code differently, having a few selctable methods of cleaning up would be beneficial such as:
    -Keep opening parentheses on same…
