Type DateTime.MaxValue on a new line then use home key to return to start of line, it cursor doesn't move, using the right arrow key works ok though.

3.2 Windows

btw. what do you mean with 3.2 ? We don't have a MD version 3.2 yet.

Home key has no effect after typing a property name.

Same with MaxValue or any other property.

When I see the issue correctly, then it's by design.

That's because the completion box is open - that takes the home/end keys as long as it's there. (esc->home in that case)

Fair enough. Visual Studio 2010 doesn't do this, which i prefer as when Im on a laptop I like to navigate with those keys, perhaps well see if anyone else has an opinion in the future. Best Regards.

Just don't type the words out - you've Now selected after typing N - when you hit return there you save 1 keystroke :)
