i'm not in compose mode

oops it was shift-enter

that allows me to do this in one post

some use shift-enter and some use ctrl-enter
Yeah... I'll read the FAQ/help to see if mobile has this.
What is the difference between control enter and shift enter?
Yann Duran
@yannduran
much appreciated
Sure! Going to bed. Night!
Yann Duran
@yannduran
the difference is usually nothing i think. they both achieve the same thing, just some apps use one other use the other
my apologise to all the developers who had to read through another huge conversation. my intention was exactly the opposite

Running VS2019 offline layout update with this, but it seems to have frozen, not sure what other work it needs to do as long as I have the layout downloaded offline, right? vs_setup.exe update --installLayoutPath "F:\vs2019\MyInstance\16.9.31229.75\install" --installPath "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\MyInstance" --wait --norestart --quiet --noWeb

I will ask again. How come the process freezes? It appears to want to bootstrap something for restart now? No updating dialog appears. Nothing. It just freezes and never returns. Are there different better options that I can use to at least get SOME sort of response? Again, have ALREADY downloaded offline layout, do NOT need to do it again, that's the whole point of this approach, after all. Thank you...

@mwpowellhtx sorry to ask the obvious question. have you lodged a bug on the Developer Community website?

that comes purely from immense frustration! i'm totally sure he didn't mean it personally

Indeed, the Kafkaesque nature of these kinds of things is very frustrating, the "system" operating like an uncaring, insensitive machine, always placing the onus over and over on those who are doing MS a favor by bringing these things to their attention, carefully describing what they're seeing, supplying information as and when asked. It seems that the goal these technicians are striving toward is to close tickets, actually getting them fixed seems to not be a concern.

@yannduran
whether it's intentional or not (and personally I do believe it's intentional for the most part) it certainly FEELS that way, yes. and that's why we get so frsutrated
Hugh Gleaves
@Korporal
What I found objectionable is the canned message about closing unless the requested materials are supplied - yet none were requested, how can one interact meaningfully with such a flawed system?

Just respond and provide your thoughts and responses.
As I said, I've been in this position many times. A simple response from the other party is enough to resolve confusing cases the vast majority of Times
Occasionally it takes me than that. However, in my time there are likely dozens to hundreds of cases (out of umpteen thousands) that have demonstrated that open communication is extremely effective at resolving mistakes.
Kafkaesque
This does not seem kafakaesque. If someone misunderstands and asks for something that doesn't make sense in a particular context, then clarifications may be needed. Like I said with my own experiences, making a mistake is definitely possible, but I've never found that calling the other side 'dumb' leads to a successful resolution. :-)
actually getting them fixed seems to not be a concern.

I assume the tracking system was designed?

can we please not dso this again?
do*
This is not true. Fixing issues is definitely a huge concern. However, there are legitimate times when someone triaging honestly things there is no issue.
Hugh Gleaves
@Korporal

can we please not dso this again?

Yes, I agree, I'm done.

But even in that case here, they reached out giving two weeks for any response to see if their conclusion was wrong. But there were no responses then... So closing was appropriate.
Yann Duran
@yannduran
enough!
Wouldn't you have done the same? I.e. if you thought nothing was wrong, and customer didn't say anything else, what would you do in that situation?
Do what? I think it's entirely reasonable (and appropriate to this forum) to discuss the triage process and ways to improve it, or ways to understand it better.
can we please not dso this again?
enough!
@yannduran This is on topic for this forum. And this is important information about a core diagnostics process.
Developer community is the expected mechanism for providing feedback and issues for non-github-based teams.

@yannduran
@CyrusNajmabadi you've obviously not learned from our previous interaction. you're not hearing what people are saying, you're just trying to make a point, again. the two people involved in the discussion have said they've had enough, so unless someone asks you another question, please STOP

Does anyone know if using code snippets in Visual Studio 16.11.0 Preview 2.0 in .NET 6, using WPF with BlazorWebView, is currently not working as intended? I'm trying the usual "prop" and double-tab to have the prop snippet appear, but nothing happens. It's like code snippets are not working at all.
Talking about .razor pages, at the bottom inside a @code block
It's working fine in normal .cs files, but in .razor files inside a @code block, it doesn't, even tho it works as intended in the non-preview of Visual Studio
