    Viewing breakpoints when NOT in Debug mode

    Bback in the good old days of VC8, if I was editing a project (i.e. not in compile mode or debug mode etc) the bottom bit of my edit window used to show breakpoints (see the attached screenshot). I found this to be really useful but I can't seem to make VS2019 show the breakpoints (except when debugging). Am I just not seeing something in the setup options?

    I just figured it out... first, detach the Output window (so that it's floating on some different part of the screen). Then select Debug->Windows->Breakpoints and the breakpoints will now display where the Output window used to be.

    Or, the debug and output windows appear as tabs in the same pane.
