Perhaps this is already achievable but I was unable to figure it out.
I find the constant suggestion lists very distracting and they tend to cover up code I am reading as I write new code. However they are still useful.
I would love the ability to hit a keybind and toggle the actual suggestion list for the word I'm currently typing. I saw there was a "toggle suggestions" keybind but that appears to just turn the option on and off rather than actually toggling the list itself.
I don't need suggestions for fstream when I'm just typing float but I might want it if I'm doing longMethodName()
I did not know about the control key. That is useful.
I think I was having issues figuring out what was caused by VS by default and what was being caused by VA. I believe I have it setup the way you are suggesting now. VS lists are disabled, VA suggestion lists disabled (top checkbox) but enabled in c++. So now if I type `fl` I get a single suggestion of `float` and ctrl-space will show the list of other suggestions. Is there a way to disable even that single suggestion? Basically I don't want anything showing unless I specifically tell it to.
VA Options -> Suggestions -> Suggestion and Completion lists Include VA Snippets
since when you type "fl" this is being taken as a trigger for the VA Snippet for float. Or, if you prefer, you can keep this enabled, but just edit your snippets, so they don't get prompted when it's less useful to you:
