Removing unused references.

RS is very good at highlighting and removing unused "using" statements.

I was wondering if it was possible that RS could also remove unused references from a project as well? After RS removes the "using" lines you sometimes have orphaned references that can also be removed which I do manually. It's not a problem if it can't but just in case it can could someone tell me how?

     There's no 'Remove all unused references' as such, but you can right click each reference and run 'Find Code Dependent on Module'. If it doesn't find any code that uses the reference, you can safely remove it.
