Showing all the overloads

When hovering over a method, the tooltip used to be able to switch between the overloads. Now all I see is something like (+ 7overload(s)) without the arrows. I am not sure if this is a Visual Studio setting or a R# settings which disabled this feature. I can't find it.

"It's a part of the standard intellisense Visual Studio had since v6, but overridden by R# for better behavior and presentation." 

Wow 8 years later.  How is this better???  How is not being able to see the other overloads better?

Hi,

I'm wondering about the same thing. I don't think the question has been answered correctly.

When new-ing up an object, I'd like to be able to quickly scroll through the constructor overloads descriptions and signitures displayed in the intellisense window.
The arrows are not there any more and I've tried various arrow key combinations.

How?

Hello,

Studio setting or a R# settings which disabled this feature. I can't

The Parameter Info popup is switching through the overloads, or displaying
them all in a row.

I believe this never worked for regular hover tooltips, at least because
they cannot be clicked.

So I guess I am getting the regular tooltip and not the parameter info tooltip. How do I get the parameter info tooltip to be the default or can one switch between the two at will?

Parameter info is not a tooltip in that it wouldn't show when you mouse-hover
in the text editor. It's a part of the standard intellisense Visual Studio
had since v6, but overridden by R# for better behavior and presentation.
You could use the same shortcut as in Visual Studio (CtrlShiftSpace by
default) to summon it when inside a method call, or invoke the action from
the main menu, or set up R# options to autopopup this kind of intellisense
when typing an opening parenthesis or alike.

It will not show up on a method declaration, though.
