Thoughts on R# Intellisense

(1) Whenever I install a new version of R# my R# preferences get switched to using R# intellisense which I don't want to use as it is inferior to VS2010 Intellisense. I want the options to keep my preferences.

(2) Just my 2 cents on the topic - I think that R# should re-think its strategy on Intellisense. It seems when I use R# Intellisense it is inferior to VS2010 intellisense. There are too many cases where R# is inferior to VS2010 Intellisense to report them all as bugs. I would suggest that R# try to complement VS2010 instead of replacing it. It seems R# just can't compete with VS: it is slower, intellisense doesn't popup when VS's Intellisense pops up and it really isn't better than VS2010 intellisense - just much slower and gives the same suggestions.

I guess I'd have to strongly disagree with the premise that R# intellisense
is in any way inferior to VS2010 intellisense.

I can't imagine going back to VS2010 intellisense in fact, and can't imagine
what you think is "wrong" with R#'s.  Can you elaborate?

For me it's every bit as fast, and gives much better suggestions...
especially when using smart type completion and the other specialized R#
options.

Are you using VB.NET? (I heard C# Intellisense is a lot faster). Just out of curiosity, what suggestions do you get from R# that you don't get from VS2010?

One thing that drives me crazy is that when using R# intellisense and I type:

MyInstance.MyMethod(somearg, <-- Caret here

(I don't get a dropdown after typing the comma. VS2010 gives me the next parameter, R# doesn't). It's a lot of things like this.

Or I would type:

MyInstance. <-- Caret Here

(R#'s intellisense will sit for about 20 seconds and after that will give me something - this happens esp. in large files. When I turn on VS2010 Intellisense the dropdown appears instantly. BTW, R# would give me the same list as VS2010, no difference)
