I'm working on a program that works with waveforms.

It would be great to be able to embed Visio diagrams in the comments. It could be something like a field code that points to a jpg or vsd file in the project, but expands to a diagram within Visual Studio.

Thank you for sending this suggestion. Although we don't plan to include built-in support for Visio diagrams for the next release of Visual Studio, it would certainly be possible to implement this as an Editor extension with VS 2010's expanded extensibility model. The best way to get started is to download the Visual Studio 2010 CTP, available as a free public download here: Once you're logged into the VPC, check out the CommentAdornment sample, located at C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\CTP Walkthroughs\Visual Studio\Samples.

You can also use the Microsoft Connect site to log bugs or make suggestions for VS 2010. I hope you'll try the CTP and let us know what you think.

Thanks again for your feedback!
