Solved: Visual Studio sometimes loses Intellisense with ReSharper 8.x [Field Notes]

less than 1 minute read | Suggest an edit | Issue? Question?


Sometimes, for whatever reason, Intellisense will go away in Visual Studio while using ReSharper.

This is a bummer, because Intellisense is a huge help, and very easy to take for granted until it’s gone.


Some folks reported having to close and reopen Visual Studio to get this to work, but I was able to fix it in the following way:

  • From the ReSharper Menu, choose Options: Resharper menu
  • From the Intellisense Menu, choose General: Resharper Intellisense Menu
  • Ensure that ReSharper is selected, so you get all that extra goodness: General Settings Menu Resharper Selection
  • Click Save: Clicking the Save button

At this point, ReSharper appears to refresh its settings and this kicks Intellisense back into action.
