Metascroll is a Visual Studio add-in which replaces the editor scrollbar with a graphic representation of the code. Its feature include:

  • double-clicking the scrollbar brings up an options dialog where the color scheme and various other things can be configured.
  • the width of the scrollbar is configurable.
  • the widget at the top of the scrollbar which splits the editor into two panes is still usable when the add-in is active.
  • you must hold down ALT when double-clicking a word to highlight all its occurrences in the file. RockScroll highlights words on regular double-click, which can be annoying when you actually meant to use drag&drop text editing, for example when dragging a variable to the watches window. People who prefer the old behavior can disable this in the options dialog.
  • pressing ESC clears the highlight markers.
  • lines containing highlighted words are marked with 5x5 pixel blocks on the right edge of the scrollbar, to make them easier to find (similar to breakpoints and bookmarks).
  • multiline comments are recognized.
  • hidden text regions and word wrapping are supported.
  • it works in split windows.
  • middle-clicking the scrollbar shows a preview of the code around the clicked line
  • it's open source, so people who want to change stuff or add features can do so themselves.
