I finally got back to this issue, and here is what I did: Record a one-line
macro that makes a call to CollapseToDefinitions (select the item on the
Edit Menu). Then create a DocumentEvents_DocumentOpened event handler in the
Macro IDE (go to Macro Explorer, open the macro IDE, and select the
Environment Events module in My Macros). Create a
DocumentEvents_DocumentOpened  handler and move the recorded call to
CollapseToDefinitions to the event handler. Documents will now collapse to
Definitions when they are opened.

To be honest I don't know what you are talking about. I have VS 2005
Professional SP1 and both the Visual Basic and C# designers act the
same when I right click and select Outlining --> Collapse To
Definitions. All properties and methods collapse, but the namespace,
class, and using blocks stay expanded.

Secondly, suppose you are correct and that the VB 2005 designer had a
bug. This newsgroup is not the place to report it, we are the
community members and (afaik) none of us are responsible for the
design and functionality of the IDE. I don't know the URL for the
website to report a bug or to give a suggestion, but perhaps you could
google for it.

4.Collapse to Definitions and copy/paste

I have a very large class library and I need to provide documentation. I need 
a list of all methods but I don't need the underlying code so the collapse to 
definitions form is great. However, if I copy the code editors contents when 
it is collapsed then paste it into MS Word it expands into full code. 

Any thoughts?
