Hello,

I'm starting to work with AVR Studio as a hobbyist, while having worked with MS Visual Studio as a professional and I miss the VS productivity enhancements very much. For example I'm used to being able to go to function prototype easily after placing cursor on a function call and pressing keyboard shortcut. Similarly, being able to go to function implementation, using Alt + left arrow to go to previous location in the code, etc.

This functionality seems so obvious to me, that I was certain there must be some 3rd party productivity enhancement plugin for AVR Studio. But I didn't find any.

I read somewhere on AVRfreaks that it's possible to use some other source code editor, namely Programmer's Notepad. What are the pros?

Is it somehow possible to add the above mentioned functionality? Or are there any (possibly commercial) alternatives to AVR Studio which already have it?

Code::Blocks is an IDE that does a lot of what you want. Or you could combine Eclipse, CDT and the avr-gcc tool chain. Or you could wait for AVR Studio 5..

As of January 15, 2018, Site fix-up work has begun! Now do your part and report any bugs or deficiencies here

No guarantees, but if we don't report problems they won't get much of  a chance to be fixed! Details/discussions at link given just above.

I take it you have read all 9 pages of:

As you'll read there (and Johan says above) the AVR Studio 4 dead duck looks to be replaced by Eclipse which features all the standard features you expect in this day and age like source browsing.

AVRStudio 5 for those far braver that me:
http://www.torrentdownloads.net/...

Wonder what that is about? Anyone care to risk their machine to find out?
