I started using Resharper C++ (VS2019) a week ago, where up until the I used Visual Assist.
I customized most of the features and it's nice. Unfortunately, it's unbearably slow (without it there are no issues). When I'm writing code - even comments - in the editor, there are random freezes of a couple of seconds, which are intolerable. For me, the assist side is a nice to have, but it should never interfere with or delay my writing.
I tried suggested solutions that I found online and disabled a lot of features, and also tried to limit the number of cores, but to no avail. I believe there's something inherently wrong with it: does Resharper interfere with the main thread or are all its operations asynchronous on low priority (which can be limited to a single working thread)? Clearly it's the former. Until this is confirmed by the team with a given date when it would be fixed, I find the product unusable. I don't have fate in trying to speed it up or delve into log files until this main design is fixed. That is, I don't care when the Intellisense or squiggles pop-up or if they show at all; there should never be any delays when I'm writing code.
The comments on this article don't give me faith:
