I've recently done an upgrade from circa 2011 version of Visual Assist to a current build and I'm finding some problems. FYI I have installed Visual Assist on both vs2008 and vs2013.

The first issue is that when I'm typing a symbol, the suggestion is auto completed by default. This is usually NOT what I want, e.g.:



For instance in this case I want and type "Lock" but "LockFile" being the first suggest is auto-inserted. So for every variable I type something else that I don't want replaces it unless I hit "escape" after typing the symbol name.

I need this switched off asap. None of the settings in Visual Assist seem to control this behaviour. It may be the IDE itself... but I just want it to stop.

For Visual Studio 2008, you need to disable this 2 Visual Assist settings:



For Visual Studio 2013, you need to disable the first VA setting and clear the content of the below Visual Studio editbox:



I hope this helps.

Is the symbol 'Lock' recognized?

If you fully type 'Lock' it should not overwrite with 'LockFile' as shown in my test screenshot.

accord: should help a lot, thanks.

ChrisG: Yes "Lock" is a member function of a base class in that context.
