  1. PowerShell ISE does not have the ability to restart the console independent of restarting the entire ISE

    Restarting the Powershell process independent of the entire ISE would be a beneficial feature for ISE users during testing and debugging, to clear variables, sessions, scopes, classes, etc... If you are working in the ISE and have several script files open on the editor it is cumbersome to have to save files, restart the entire ISE application and reopen files etc...

    Problem Description:
    JSON is fast becoming a viable alternative to XML.. Therefore PowerShell ISE should support syntax coloring in a similar manner as it treats XML files

  3. ISE: Add support for "Copy Full Path" context menu command on script tabs

    I often need the path name to the file I'm editing. In V3 I can hover the mouse over the tab and a tooltip will present the path. However, I usually need to provide this path to other commands (like cd or paste them into another window), and I currently have to hand-repeat it.

    Right-Click on tab -> Copy Full Path is a great way to solve this; it's the same approach used by Visual Studio.

  4. Windows PowerShell ISE: Implement a Save All files feature and tie it to Ctrl+Shift+S

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

    Problem Description:
    It would be great if PS ISE had a "Save All" files feature to save all open, unsaved files. This is considered standard functionality in most IDEs these days, and it is typically bound to the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+S. Basically the same functionality as Ctrl+S, just iterate over all open, unsaved tabs and do the same.

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

    Problem Description:
    The ISE toolbar has a lot of unused space and there have been suggestions for other items to be added to the toolbar.

    Could you make the toolbar extensible via the $PSISE variable? This would allow add-on authors to offer toolbar buttons for their extensions.

    Frequency: Always Happens
    Regression: No, this is new to the most recent version

    Problem Description:
    In PowerShell_ISE it is fairly easy to add functionality via menu items that perform some action against PowerShell file types. However, when editing non-PowerShell files it is more difficult to extend. For instance I created a SQL pack for PowerShell_Ise which provides an IDE for SQL queries. This works OK, however there are a few things that can't be done like implement my…
