Recently (after merge with master-roslyncompletion branch I guess) the completion mechanism stopped showing types that could be imported. For example, you type "ConcDic", press Ctrl+Alt+Space and instead of getting proposal to import namespace containing ConcurrentDictionary it gives an empty list.
That's not enabled by default.
text editor -> intellisense -> show import items
If that worked before it was a bug.
I have that option enabled. This works in 7.3 and below but not in 7.4 Build 205 (master).
In 7.3 with the caret at the end of 'ConcDic' pressing Ctrl+Alt+Space converts it into ConcurrentDictionary. VS Mac 7.4 shows No Completion items in the code completion window. You also get ConcurrentDictionary in the code completion window as you type 'ConcDic' in VS Mac 7.3 but not with 7.4.
No, this option, as far as I managed to understand it, affects the behavior of casual completion procedure. Then it would show not only types and methods available in the scope, but also possible imports to get those types and extension methods into the scope.
I'm talking about Ctrl+Alt+Space completion which is called "Import symbol" in key binding settings. And, by the way, if I enable aforementioned option it still woudnl't show any import proposal, even in casual completion.
Fixed in version 188.8.131.522 (master)
