Problem with auto-indent, auto-complete, intellisense....

Hi there,

I have this really frustrating problem with Visual Studio (Microsoft Visual
Basic .NET 2003 69586-335-0000007-18843). I have got used to using the
autocomplete and auto indent features of this excellent source editor but
recently it has only operated on some of my source files and not others. I
have made sure the settings in "tools->options->text editor" are set
correctly but to no avail. For example, hitting enter at the end of the
line used to auto indent to the next source line, now in some of my source
files it does not. The "auto syntax checking" only works sometimes too. It
will flag an error in a line, but when I correct the line, it still shows
underlined as incorrect. The error line will be removed when I recompile.

Is there something I am missing here?
Thanks

Not very probable, but source file > 8192 lines? (had the problem with an
auto-generated (database structure encapsulating) file).

I have heard about similar problems, but I don't know a solution. Does
the problem occur in all projects?

I don't know - I only have one project on the go. It was working fine and
then suddenly went **ts up, but not all of the time, or with all source
files.

No, I don't have any source files with this number of lines (at the moment).

Just out of interest, I re-created my solution in another directory (copied
the source files in) and now intellisense/auto-xxxx seems to be working
properly. I must have had a corrupted state file (.pdb?) or whatever
database it uses to make things work.
