Description Marek Safar 2011-07-27 12:50:22 UTC
When hovering over various C# member types MD uses various format to display same information

for local fields and parameters the format is

<type> <name>

for properties it's

<name>: <type>

for indexers and enum values it's


It should be consistent with C# definition which is always <type> <name>

This seems trivial and could be done for 2.8. I always find this inconsistency confusing too. Marking as a blocker so we can get this fixed for 2.8.

fixed. The ambiences are becoming more and more complex, I'll try to improve the ambience system in the future - that was a side effect I didn't notice :(
