Hello,
I dont know when it started but if i start typing in visual studio it suggests a list of possible things i could mean (for example i declared a variable "myVar" and now i type "my" it suggests me "myVar") - this is really nice because i just press enter and thats it.. but now it adds "myVar" AND adds a new line.
This is really annoying because if you try to type
std::string myVar{"..."};
and now you write an if using the suggestions it becomes

if (myVar
.length()
<= 10)
(accepted "myVar" after typing "my", accepted ".length" after typing ".le") and so on...

How to disable this behaviour?!

Yes, we code!

additional info:

happened to ca 10 dev's in our team too
if you use cursor keys to navigate inside the suggestion list the cursor also moves in the document. seems to do some selection during this movement. this selection is then replaced if you hit enter.
same effect if you navigate method list (alt-m) and select with enter.

very annoying
you can disable suggestion list in c++ files
but the method list problem still remains

Many of us have the same issue. It suuuuper annoying but disabling it just makes us notice how much better the VAX list box is and how much we miss it. One of us even forced himself to just select the items by mouseclick :

So far, I'm not able to repro and we haven't seen anything like this in our automated tests. What version of 2019 are you using?

Is the problem immediately reproducible or is it something that starts occurring some time after VS start?

visual studio enterprise
vs navigation is not visible

eventual it is related to existence of other extensions
most suspiciously: nunit test adapter (installs surprisingly some graphics aware components)
followed by: incredibuild

but not sure

In Help | About Microsoft Visual Studio, the line beneath the SKU where it states Enterprise/Professional/Community, should be a line with the version. For example, I have "Version 16.2.0 Preview 3.0"

The next time this happens, please try a VS settings reset just to see if that has any effect on the problem. Export your settings first so that you can restore them after the experiment. No restart of VS is necessary. See Tools | Import and Export Settings. Roughly:
- export current settings, selecting all items
- reset settings
- see if the problem still occurs
- import your saved settings to restore previous state

Do any of you have any programs installed that may capture the keyboard or modify keyboard behaviour? Something like ViEmu, or a clipboard software, etc? A different user of Visual Assist had the very same issue, and uninstalling a keyboard-related software has helped for him. He didn't mention the name of the software though.

Over in https://forums.wholetomato.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=16658 someone else is reporting broken enter key handling caused by IncrediBuild version 1.5.0.10. What version of IncrediBuild do you have installed?

Are any of you with this problem not using IncrediBuild?

Can confirm. Removing the Incredibuild VS extension via the Agent Settings fixed the issue for me :)
I also had version 1.5.0.10 installed.
Luckily UE4 still uses Incredibuild for building the code even without the extension but I'm not sure if other people can afford to uninstall the extension.
Thanks sean!

yes removing incredibuild extension seems to fix the issue.
ib-version 1.5.0.10
but removing ib permanently is not an option.

Just another datapoint here, we have the same version of Incredibuild (the build number is for the visual studio extension, not IB itself) and Visual Assist version 10.9.2333.0. Issue is affecting multiple programmers over several locations. Trying to reach out to IB but their support provider is blocked on the company firewall >_<

double checked, downgrading from ib-version 9.4.1 to ib-version 9.4 fixes the problem, but problem reappears after reboot even with version 9.4

I've received a response from IncrediBuild support:
"we are working on the fix. The problem is with the IB add-in so one of the Solutions is to revert the add-in version back to 1.5.0.4 (no need to downgrade IB)."

In addition to Alex's great instructions, support also writes:
Another option is to downgrade IncrediBuild to the previous version.
This can be done from the Coordinator Monitor -> Tools -> Version Rollback

But not being an IB user, I don't know if that is overkill compared to using VS extension management.
