Why do we lose first character autocomplete?

I don't see a FAQ in this forum so it here goes:

Without R# in Visual Studio if I simply type one character I'm prompted with available types. Why doesn't this work in R#?

For example if I have a Catalog type and inside of some method I type "C", then I'm prompted with autocomplete for my type Catalog and other appropriate options.

Hello,

with available types. Why doesn't this work in R#?

Well, it does. Maybe it has been disabled accidentally in the R# options.

Hi Serge,

Thanks for your reply.

It seems like the option has been "accidentally" disabled in VS2008 Tool->Options->Text Editor->C#->Auto List Members.

Is it possible R# could be turning off this option during install? I didn't even know where the option was before it stopped working and had to track it down.

Thanks,
Lee

More info:

It looks like R# turns off this setting every time VS2008 is shutdown and restarted.

I'd call that a mustfix for rtm.

I guess this is as intended. R# replaces Visual Studio completion with its
own (unless explicitly told not to), so the VS one is suppressed. For autopopup
completion, R# options should be enabled instead of VS ones.

R# was expected to inherit the VS settings on install, and it's a bug that
it did not.
