Visual Studio extension for quickly jumping to a file in the solution
This is a fork of the Open Now! Visual Studio extension by Ryan Gregg. Open Now! stopped working with Visual Studio 2019, and isn't very actively maintained, so I decided to make my own copy so I could start making tweaks and improvements.
So far, the changes from Open Now! are:
There are a number of special characters that can prefix search terms. You can string several special characters together to create more advanced terms. The actual search string starts after the first invalid special character or opening quote. These special characters are:
The ampersand (&) specifies that the search string should be combined with a logical "and". (Note, this is the default implicit behavior - you probably wont even need to type an ampersand). The vertical bar (|) specifies that the search string should be combined with a logical "or". The hyphon (-) and apostrophe (!) specify that the search string should be negated. The backward slash () or forward slash (/) specify that the whole file or project path should be searched, not just the file or project name. The colon (:) specifies that the project or project path should be searched and not the file name or file path. The double quote (") can be used to surround the above special characters (or spaces) to effectively "escape" them. The asterisk (*) can be used as a multi character wildcard. The question mark (?) can be used as a single character wildcard.
Special Character Examples:
I've installed FastGoToFile, where can I find it?
By default, FastGoToFile will create a command called "Fast Go To File..." under your "Tools" menu. The default shortcut is Ctrl+Shift+Alt+O.
How can I change the shortcut to FastGoToFile?
