Any way to disable statistics for automplete?

Answered

From reading bug reports and update notes, and from using Rider, I've learned that Rider uses statistics for auto-completion. Ie, if I select an option for autocomplete often, it's moved further up the list.

I hate this. Since this causes the options to move around, I can't ever properly "learn" the key combinations needed to output a specific bit of code. If the suggestions are static, I can write the same key combination and press down the same number of times every time I want to write a specific class or method. Instead, it's semi-random what shows up in that list, so I keep learning key combinations that I have to unlearn again when Rider shuffles things around.

So I'm wondering if there's an option to just turn the entire thing off, and remove all instances of Rider remembering what I input.

Hello Baste! You can clear completion statistics via clearing caches. To do this perform the action `File | Invalidate Caches/Restart -> Invalidate and Restart`. Here is a corresponding help page: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/rider/Cleaning_System_Cache.html.

Hi!

That's not quite what I meant. I don't want the clear the completion statistics. I just don't want there to be any statistics happening, because that makes the order of autocomplete suggestions change.

I could clean the caches on every restart, but that also cleans caches for things I care about.

Hello Baste,
Sorry for the misunderstanding. Unfortunately, there is no way to disable statistics in completion feature.
