I adopted Visual Studio Code a few months ago because my previous IDE was a resource hog. VSC seems lightweight and responsive.
However, I see some patterns emerging in my usage that concern me. And I think they're about the software as much as anything.
First off, navigation in the EXPLORER. I have dozens of subfolders and hundreds of files in my project. It seems I'm constantly scrolling the mouse or dragging the scrollbar up or down to get to the file I need next. And I don't find that it remembers what I did last, that is, "Recent Files" is more like "Recent Folders".
Next, lots of functionality comes from plug-ins, which is great, except they don't appear to keep in sync with the frequent changes to VSC, which auto-updates itself a couple times a month. When 'ftp-sync' is broken, it really affects my usage.
Finally, twice when it's updated itself it's actually DELETED itself, and I had to find a downloaded version of the software and reinstall it.
Separately, I don't feel these are huge issues ... but I'm starting to resent them in context with each other, and that makes me enjoy work less and probably less productive as well.
Anyone else notice this sort of thing?
