OzCode 0.9.3223.6114 now supports pinning of DataTips. Pinned DataTips are currently not persisted after you close Visual Studio - this will be fixed in a future release.

I use the "Pin" feature often, and with BugAid installed it is totally unavailable, and I miss it.

Please include this feature in BugAid..   Pinned visualizations are very nice when you are looping through something.
Just started using BugAid and this is the first thing I noticed when debugging.  It's definitely needed.
I agree, having the pin icon would be great.  As a work around for now you can map a keyboard shortcut to EditorContextMenus.CodeWindow.PinToSource.  I mapped mine to Ctrl+D, Ctrl+P (i.e. Debug-Pin), so I just put the cursor on the variable I want to pin and hit the keyboard shortcut.  This is my work around, but I would still love to see a GUI icon for it as well, or at least a context menu item.
Need... pin... so... badly... :)
I agree!  This would make this product amazing..
This is especially needed in VS 2012 now, as you can't use the keyboard shortcut workaround I mentioned above as easily.  While before you used to just be able to put the cursor in the variable that you wanted to pin and hit the keyboard shortcut, in VS 2012 you have to highlight the entire expression of the variable that you want to pin; for example, if you wanted to pin the SomeVariable in myClassInstance.SomeVariable, you have to highlight the entire expression "myClassInstance.SomeVariable" before pressing the keyboard shortcut.  I logged this as a bug with Microsoft, but they said that it's by design :(

Thanks a lot for your feedback! That's a shame about VS2012. When we implement pinning, we'll also implement a proper keyboard shortcut for it, that automatically takes the entire expression, like our QuickWatch (Shift+F9) shortcut does.
