I love this tool very much.

1. This is a bug.
When I open the dialog, I cannot see part of it. I am using Windows XP Simplified Chinese version. Sorry that I cannot paste a snapshot here. What I cannot see and set is the text box --- Resource Name. As a result, I cannot set the string name myself which is horrible most of the time.

The only walk around I can see is to navigate to the text box by press TAB for several times, and type the name without knowing what is typed.

A possible bug fix may be the dialog turns to be resizable.

2. This is a request.
When I refactor a string to resource A.resx, I'd like to have a corresponding entry added to A.zh-CN.resx and A.<any culture>.resx. That would be much more convenient. The entries added to A.<any culture>.resx may contain the English version of the string, after all I need to translate them myself.

I have done a patch myself which is a modified version of ResourceRefactor.UserInterface.dll.

I changed the UI a little bit to make the invisible items visible.

This modified version fix the bug described above.

The patch dll can be found at


Replace the original one with this (back up the original version if necessary) and then open Visual Studio 2005 to see the changes I made.
