  1. Start signing the ISE Preview module

    The ISE preview module file "C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PowerShellISE-preview\5.1.1\PowerShellISE-preview.psm1" is not signed. Can you start signing it so it is available in an environment where running unsigned scripts is restricted by the execution policy.

    I know there are ways around this but it would be nice to see the file signed by MS.

  2. Execute multi-line command line using F8 without selecting the region.

    Consider the following in the script pane:

    Get-Command `
    -Verb Get

    If the cursor is on the first line containing "Get-Command" and if F8 is pressed, an "IncompleteString" error is generated. Since, there is a back-tick present at the end of the line, ISE should take the next line into account for execution.

    Handle: azhskr
    Site Name: PowerShell
    Feedback ID: 1347198


    Frequency: PowerShell ISE
    Regression: Launch PowerShell ISE as either Administrator or non-Administrator
    Get-Service BITS
    Import-Module "Module Name"
    Get-Module "Module Name"
    Get-Service BITS
    Remove-Module "Module Name"
    Import-Module -Name "Module Name"
    Get-Module -Name "Module Name"
    Get-Module "Module Name"
    Get-Service BITS

    Problem Description:
    Using Import-Module -Name "Module Name" imports the module, but breaks all output in the ISE. Using Import-Module "Module Name" imports the module and doesn't affect the output.

  5. New PowerShell Tab needs a toolbar button in ISE

    Feedback ID: 719121


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

    Problem Description:
    I would argue that in the ISE, the console should be treated co-equal to the script pane. If that's the case, why isn't there a New PowerShell Tab button just like there is a new script button? I would love to see a new toolbar icon to that effect.

  6. Saving file in the remote session has failed with error: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation..

    Since a few weeks, when I edit a file in a PSSession in ISE I get this error message when I save the modifications:

    Saving file: C:\path\file.ps1 in the remote session has failed with error: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation..

    Not sure there is a link, but this problem appeared around the moment when this post has been published.
