They just indicate that there are overloads. But y with such design you can argue that they're clickable.

You can use the left/right arrow to switch through the overloads.

Hi Mike,

We are able to switch through overloads using left/right arrow keys. But the point over here is that showing arrow icons at tooltip gives user an impression that switching can done by these icons as well.

i.e Using mouse click on the arrow icon. Please suggest.

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this report! I attempted to reproduce this issue based on the bug description with the latest Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Preview version 7.1, and I was unable to hit the problem. If this issue is still occurring for you, please reopen this report and attach steps to reproduce.

On my end, when auto complete is showing an overloaded method, I can click the arrow icons to move through the method overloads.
