There is a picture with example:

If I have a variable with any name starting with "class" no one variant is selected in the suggestion box during typing. So I have to use arrows.

This is caused by Visual Studio snippets:

- Tools -> Code Snippet Manager...
- Select Visual C++ in the combobox under "Language:"
- Open Visual C++ treenode to see the snippets, including "class" and "classi".

class and classi snippets are the obvious reason here. Snippets are always preferred, so you can rely on them when want fast expanding, e.g. class, enter. Always. Also, this is how Visual Studio works, so if you disable Viusal Assist temporarily (VAssistX -> Enable/Disable Visual Assist X), you get the same effect. We would like to keep Visual Studio behavior when feasible, so Visual Assist can remain "transparent" instead of being "obstructive".

You can turn this feature off by setting the following to true:
Tools -> Options... -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Advanced -> Disable Member List Code Snippets

Personally, I disable this, and when I need a snippet, I use the shortcut for

Edit -> Intellisense -> Insert Snippet...

(You can even change the shortcut)
For example, I like the "switch" snippet of Visual Studio which inserts all items of an enum as cases of the switch, automatically. Mostly, I use VA snippets though (which is a separate feature: http://www.wholetomato.com/products/features/vasnippets.asp)

Sorry to be a little off topic, but you mentioned that VS built-in snippets has support for "switch"? Is this on C++/VS2010? It would be great to automatically list all cases of the switch if they are enums. Perhaps VAX should do this as well?

I saw this first in VS2012 with C++. As far as I know, it was supported in earlier versions for C#.

We are considering something like this maybe as a refactoring command:
