Hello,
My problem: key words aren't capitalizing in the editor. Example, if I create a variable StrEdit (as string) and then, when I type that variable in lowercase it remains in lowercase. Key words as well, like Redim, Msgbox etc . . . There aren't any errors in the actual code, but it's disconcerting when I'm so used to auto formatting.
How it may have gone wrong: In my effort to eliminate as much of the 'helpful' tools Microsoft has, like intellisense (because I kept getting a new line after hitting enter, despite checking the option never add a new line on enter). It's possible I may have been a little too thorough.
I'm using Visual Studio 2019 Community. I did reload the project.
If anyone has advice, I'd be grateful.
Thank you for your time,
N

In Tools - Import and Export settings - there is option to reset environment to default settings.

Text Editor - Basic - Advanced - 'Pretty Listing' is what "Recase keywords, variables, and objects to the correct case" and more. Options, Text Editor, Basic (VB), Advanced - Visual Studio

By the way, Tab key (or Space) is useful for autocompletion without line feed, and Enter for block completion.

This topic just made me realize how much we actually rely on AI. :giggle:
