What do you like best?

unique font clour and font representation of API, variable, macro, feature flags. better GUI for caller tracing and checking multiple references.

side by side comparison between two version of the same file. easier search the desired pice of code in project vai multiple ways file name, API name or variable name. hints in maintaining the format and typo mistakes, indentations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

generally, I deal with projects with has more 50milions+ lines of SW code and it becomes slower when you have more 2000files or 10milions + line of codes. so while writing code or browsing it I have to select only some desired lines of code.

it is not something that tool is not getting enough RAM allocation or something. my system is left with more 60% and 70% CPU cycles and source insight is still slower for the project's having 10+ millions of line code Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

the is the best product in the market with works smoothly with consuming enough resource on your system. and the great thing is that tool size is really small. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

call flow tracing via GUI diagrams and chart while debugging the SW bugs and issue.

There are plenty of thing about Source Insight that ilked

1) Syntax Formatting : It makes code look pretty interesting and it has multiple colors but never looks cluttered at all

2) reference/call tree /call graph: It is a very useful feature which automatically check and identify the reference for what user is writing or where cursor is placed.

3) symbol window : This is again useful in terms to get all the symbols of a file listed.

4) context window : This is also a very interesting Feature of source Insight which automatically populate contextual information of symbol under cursor.

5) Quickest Naviagtion : This helps save developer lot of time while doing their coding

6) Relation Window : This help to figure out relation of a particular symbol with rest of the symbols

7) Clip window : This is also very useful feature of source Insight which helps developer editing like drag and drop functionality of text between from clip to source files.

8) Debugging is also pretty useful feature of source Insight

9) Multiple independent source window which makes it very easy to manage symbol of all files separately in their separate symbol window. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1) Source Insight support for macro debugging is still missing

What do you like best?

Its main features,

Context Window, Navigation, etc.

Smart rename,

Project Conditions,

Can customize Styles and Layouts,

& availability of various themes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I didn't find anything particular and I've used it for 3 years now.

One thing I encountered recently was that it should save the Layout set for the specific project. After restarting the project, it should automatically load that layout. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

People working with code, who have to re-write, analyze, and modify the code a lot, this would be your goto tool. Easy to use, a lot of features, gives the user control of settings, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using it to code for embedded controllers mostly C. This gave me an edge over their IDE's because it was tiresome to code in the IDE's but SI made it much easier. I like the fact that it's project settings are independent of any other tool using the same code files. Plus it automatically detects changes in the files if they have been updated in any other tool & that is a major plus for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1. Easy to find the files with names or variables in File Explorer

2. Easy to open any struct/variable definitions.

3. Once Source is created, the project will be loaded much faster compared to the first time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1. Search a keyword in all the files takes time and need to be improved. Because of which I have used different editor for the search.

2. Can be expanded to link with current debuggers like AMD HDT or Intel XDP or Arium Debugger.

3. More info can be loaded at the cursor position than need to open the declaration every time.

4. Creating project with source takes time, need to be enhanced.

5. Search can also be optimized to exclude subfolders in source project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Good UI to deal with software development projects. And need to be improved in some areas mentioned in review like keyword search, creating new project with more source files etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can easily open/check the variables or files in file explorer. Which makes easy to work with source files in project.

And can able to open variable/struct declarations/definitions with shortcuts.

Easy to load and check the info once project is created. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
