What the heck happened to intellisense in 3.0?

Wow, this was a backwards step.

Resolving a reference no longer gives me the option to insert a using statement, instead it just fully qualifies the name, despite the Namespace Imports / insert using when necessary option being checked. I want this working again more than anything else.

After an install it simply didn't work, it disabled VS intellisense and didn't have any of the Resharper automatic completion options checked, except for "Letters and Digits".

TODO, Bug etc. doesn't show useful things, like, oh, say, the project or filename. It finds TODO in the middle of comments, rather than just the well known VS // TODO: style

And, as ever, the help is messed up, in 3.0 it spawns up IE rather than the document explorer.

Hello,

After an install it simply didn't work, it disabled VS intellisense
and didn't have any of the Resharper automatic completion options
checked, except for "Letters and Digits".


Looks like some settings migration issue. Hope it worked after setting up
the Options?

TODO, Bug etc. doesn't show useful things, like, oh, say, the project
or filename.


Have you tried the groupings?

It finds TODO in the middle of comments, rather than just
the well known VS // TODO: style


We suppose that a “TODO” in the middle of comments is usually written on
some purpose, so it'd better be collected and added to the list. Our project
shows that it's basically true. User-written TODOs are often much more worthy
than VS boilerplates.

It is possible to limit the filters by changing the TODO options. For example,
to constrain them to the VS pattern, with its slashes, space and case sensitivity.

And, as ever, the help is messed up, in 3.0 it spawns up IE rather
than the document explorer.


It has never used the Document Explorer. The Document Explorer manipulation
was held back from 3.0 so that not to go into using a new API (Help II API)
right before the release. ReSharper Help integrates into the Help Collection,
so it's accessible through the Contents, Index, Search and Help Filters;
and the “Help” menu item is rather just a demo to indicate that it's available.

Groupings? Ah embarrassment :)

I ended up deleting all the settings files, resetting and installing again and eventually it came back.

As for help, well it used to popup inside VS, which was nicer than popping up IE which then complains and warns against active content :)

Eventually, it will be even more nicer — in the Document Explorer.

Hello blowdart,

By 'eventually' we mean a bugfix update for 3.0 :)

I've found in our code, finding todo and bug in the middle of a comment
results in a lot of false positives. In our case, we have a lot of comments
that reference bugs that were fixed and ReSharper sometimes keys on
misleading parts of the comments in the To-do Explorer. As an example, the
comment "Fixed a bug that causes the stream to close prematurely" shows up
in To-do Explorer as "bug that causes the stream to close prematurely".

This makes the To-do Explorer less useful (and even misleading), so we made
the expressions match at the beginning of the comment to eliminate all the
false positives. We also added regular expressions for Visual Studio's
default Task List items since we mostly follow its convention (e.g. // HACK:
blah blah or // WARN: blah blah).

I know this is only my perspective, so I can go either way provided I don't
have to redo my customized regular expressions every time I install a
ReSharper update.
