Why does Resharper intellisense replace my code?

If I have some code like this...


and I put my cursor in front...

(cursor here)widget.Id

and start typing and choose something from intellisense it replaces the widget symbol with the new symbol I typed...


Usually, this is not what I want to happen. Is there a way to change this behavior?

Hello Jeremy
     Do you use TAB to complete selected item? When you press TAB, the text after the caret is replaced by the current item. In order to get normal inserting code completion use Enter to complete items. Let me know if this helps. Thank you!
