    In case anybody hasn't mentioned it thus far...

    I prefer the previous toolbox arrangement where all the components were in one toolbox. Now I have to hunt through all the toolboxes trying to find the component that I'm looking for. Please change it back to the way it was.

    No real gripes about the release other than that.

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for the feedback indeed!

    We actually made the grouping to ease the control discovery, but it seems not to work for everyone. Well, an option we are considering is that we provide the choice of having the Toolbox items grouped or not grouped during installation and/or Toolbox configuration (VSExtensions).

    How's your opinion about that?

    P.S. In the meantime, you could start typing a control name having the Toolbox active (e.g. hovered with the mouse) to navigate to the item quicker. I know this is not the best workaround, but it might still help.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks Erjan, that sounds like a reasonable option.
