Release Notes


This beta will delete settings from previous versions. The final release will (probably) migrate settings, but it is important for testing that the new defaults get used.

Your settings are saved in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\IndentGuide or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\IndentGuide and can be backed up manually. Visual Studio's Export Settings feature may also be used, though you will need to reinstall Indent Guides v11 to import your settings before upgrading.
