R# 2019.3 regression: Intellisense / autocomplete

Since installing R# 2019.3, tab completion of intellisense items refuses to work randomly - pressing <Tab> with an entry selected often inserts a tab instead of completing the code.

Keyboard navigation of the intellisense list is also hit-and-miss. Using the arrows to select an item frequently moves the cursor to the next line of code and dismisses the popup.

Yet another feature of R# that I'm going to have to disable! I'm starting to wonder what's left, and why we're still paying for it...

Hello Richard,

We’re really sorry to know you’ve experienced problems with completion.
Could you please be so kind to reinstall ReSharper 2019.3 and collect a log for us by running 'devenv /ReSharper.LogFile C:\log\resharper_log.txt /ReSharper.LogLevel Verbose'.
Please also export dotSettings from all layers in ReSharper | Manage Settings.
And video demonstrating the problem will be helpful.
Hope it won’t cause much trouble to you but we really want to investigate the problem, so your assistance is highly needed.
All info you can share with us via “Submit a request” form at the top of the page.
Thanks in advance.

I am seeing the same behavior.  This is the second issue I have come across with the 2019.3 update.  Might have to revert back to a working copy of ReSharper.

Hello Jerry,

 

Is there any chance you could provide the same information as we asked for from Richard?

Could you please also specify what was another issue you've experienced with 2019.3 version?

Thank you.

I am seeing other "poor" behavior that used to work with completion.  When I type in something like:

 

Country = command.C

 

And the Country property of the command variable shows up, I could hit , or ; and the statement would complete like:

 

Country = command.Country;

Now, the , or ; is added.

The new problems introduced in 2019.3 are bad enough such that I might have to fall back to a previous version because my productivity is gone down from having to correct so many mistakes that are introduced by the new version.

Hello Jerry,

 

thank you for the feedback.

Thanks to Richard and the information he has provided we are already working on the completion problem (tabbing and keyboard navigation in list).

Concerning the problem you've described, I'm not sure I've understood it correctly.

Could you please provide some video/screencast demonstrating it?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Jerry Nothstine,

Could you please try disabling

ReSharper | Options | Environment | Editor | Visual Studio features | Merge VS light bulb action into ReSharper action indicator

and check if completion issues are still reproduced?

Thank you.

Changing that setting seems to have improved the experience significantly.  I will be writing a bunch more code later today and will respond again if there is any more information I can provide.

 

One thing I noted last night (prior to making the change you suggested) was that when the completion dialog pops up to select an item from, it does not have focus.  In the example below, if I were to press the down arrow, the cursor in my code would move down a line instead of the property to choose from moving.  This is why just hitting the “completion key” (tab, comma, return…) would insert the key instead of completing the code.
