Turning off auto import of using statements without disabling import suggestions in completion


Automatically importing using statements causes a lot of issues because Rider adds using statements for incomplete statements, typos, etc. that are completely unnecessary. However, suggesting using imports in completion and allowing us to select one if desired is a very useful feature. Rider has both of these features, but one setting, "Show import items in basic completion," controls both. It should be possible to disable auto import of using statements without disabling suggested imports in completion.

Previous request was marked answered by saying to use the option to disable both features. This is not a satisfactory way to resolve this issue: https://rider-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360000610444-Turning-off-auto-import-of-using-statements?input_string=Turning%20off%20auto%20import%20of%20using%20statements%20without


Unfortunately, that is not possible. Please upvote this feature request: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RSRP-467250


Is this possible yet? I can't find a way to turn off the auto-added using statements. I know this is a very old thread, but I can't find anything more recent.

The linked issue did not actually address the problem. Someone apparently created a new issue, but the link doesn't work (not found).



Hi Greg

The feature has been implemented for ReSharper, but unfortunately, not for Rider. Feel free to upvote the issue; I've fixed its visibility.
