Description Gary 2017-09-28 17:36:16 UTC
I had an email exchange about this issue with Adam Hartley on 2-15-2017 and 2-17-2017 under the subject "Quick Fix doesn't do anything".  The problem is that right clicking in Xamarin Studio shows the Quick Fix menu item at the top of the popup menu but clicking that menu item doesn't show anything.  Please see the attached videos for two examples.  Adam had me uninstall Xamarin Studio on 2-15-2017 by running these commands in Terminal.

sudo rm -rf "/Applications/Xamarin Studio.app"
rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/XamarinStudio-*
rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/XamarinStudio-*
rm -rf ~/Library/Logs/XamarinStudio-*
rm -rf ~/Library/XamarinStudio-*

After I ran these commands, the Quick Fix menu item worked as expected on 2-15-2017.  However, this caused me to lose all of my Xamarin Studio preferences so I started setting them up again.  I think the only things I changed were a few settings under Source Code --> C# Source Code --> C# Format --> Edit.  On 2-17-2017 the Quick Fix menu item stopped working again and I've been testing it every once in a while to see if someone else reported the problem to you.

I think it was my C# source code settings that caused the Quick Fix menu item to break so if you tell me where those settings are stored I will send them to you to see if you can replicate the problem.

That's a very detailed bug report :).

The version you're using is fairly old - it should work on a 7.x more reliable.
Comment 5 Gary 2017-10-03 06:08:55 UTC
When I check for updates in Xamarin Studio Community it says that I'm up to date.  When is 7.x scheduled to be released?  I hope that this issue will actually be tested in 7.x rather than just expecting that it will work because you have improved the code in so many ways.
