I have VS 2013 with last updates and service-pack.

VS hangs, the window does not show design mode(remains in "view source"), then need to close/reopen tab with .ascx file. It is on all visual webparts, newly created too

I suspect that there is some application conflict.

  • Design view is not usable in VS, IMO. The only time I use it is when I need a single button in a proof of concept scenario. – Slaven Semper Feb 5 '15 at 13:28
  • I have foreign visual web part that I need to change and rebrand. So in my case it was necessary. – Gennady G Feb 5 '15 at 20:50

In my case solution is - uninstall and reinstall VS(I suspect possibly the error was caused by CKS Addition).
