How to debug Solidworks Add in using VS 2019?

I have learned how to use Solidworks addin template to create an addin. There are still a lot of mysteries here but I am working on them. The biggest mystery is how to best debug the addin? I have seen Keith Rice's answer to this question but I get stuck at step 3. It strikes me that that thread is three years old and there may be a better way.

 

It would be ideal if I could start Solidworks and then be able to use breakpoints, make changes, recompile and use all the other features the modern debugging tool like Visual Studio has.

 

What is the current best workflow for debugging Solidworks Addins?
