Unusual behavior with auto import for using statements and renaming variables

Yesterday I updated ReSharper and afterwards the following happened


  • Added code which needed additional using statements, the usual prompt appeared but after clicking the using statements where not added and was prompted again, and again. Never added the using statements.
  • When renaming a local variable in a method, the usual pyramid shows in the IDE gutter, click to apply and the variable in not renamed to usages.

Did a restart of my Windows 10 machine after the above failures, no change in these items.

Hi Angelina,

It's doubtful I can fully reproduce this but will do my bes to try to get as close as possible.
