Autocompletion Woes

Hello,

I'm not sure whether I missed a big thread on the newsgroup, but
autocompletion here (VS2005 w/ build 215) is driving me mad.

Each time I choose a method from the Intellisense, the cursor jumps
right out of the enclosing logical structure. E.g., I have

if (Bla.)
(1)-^ ^-(2)

Being on position (1), I choose something from the Intellisense popup
(confirming with Enter), and afterwards the cursor has gone to position
(2).

This gets even worse with nested expressions, where the cursor might as
well 'jump out' of 3 or 4 levels of nested parentheses.

Is anybody else experiencing this discomforting behaviour? Is there any
remedy? The problem has been observable since I started using EAP
builds, not only with 215.

Thanks for your consideration,

Christian

Hello,

Are you using basic or smart completion?

Dear Oleg

In article <55e774164199308c7f603599c2ec3@news.intellij.net>,

Hello,

Just checked that out: it happens with both, i.e., basic completion
after 'Object.' (or triggered with the shortcut), and smart completion
when typing 'new (smart completion shortcut)'. The last one even jumps
over commented out code to the right, right to the end of the line.

Cheers,

Christian
