With the new Roslyn completion engine, it's pretty hard to navigate between overloads in completion.

let's say:

> new Action(

Will trigger the completion window with down/right for completion elements, left-right for overloads.

then let's try:

> string.Equals(

Right now, the completion is ok.

But if I write anything, the completion widget appears and the overloads widget both use up/down keys. I think the overloads widget should switch to left/right.

> string.Equals(e

Will break it.

left/right is used in the completion window for cycling through overloads using that in the overloads window would break that.

I think it's an issue for design.
