Hello David,

have you tried already the  version of SPSF which has been released yesterday?

Loads of issues with columns are fixed in there, so hopefully yours too.

If not, plz be so kind and write the detailed issue with all its information i.e. sample project in the issue tracker.

This makes it easier for us to follow up.

Thanks for your support

Hey David,

we have changed the internal name of SPSF in the final release, so thats why it isn't picking up, that there is an olde version.

In Your project in VS just go to Tools -> Guidance Package Manager -> Enable/Disable Packages and disable the older version of SPSF

To uninstall you can remove SPSF through the Extension Manager of VS, as in VS2010 it is a VSIX
