    Enable Intellisense

    When checked, intellisense is turned on within the XML Editor

    Auto suggest attributes

    When checked, attributes are included in the intellisense suggestions

    Attribute Suggestion

    Auto suggest attribute values

    When checked, attributes values are included in the intellisense suggestions. Only enumeration values are include in the options.

    Auto suggest element values

    When checked, element values are included in the intellisense suggestions. Only enumeration values are include in the options.

    Add <complexType>'s to element suggestions

    When checked, element values are included along with all the complexType variants that are also allowed in the context.

    If a complex type suggestions options are selected the xsi:type attribute is also added which identifies the complex type selected.

    Expand <any> tags in element suggestions

    When check this will expand and <any> elements in the XSD using all the schema currently loaded into the XSD Schema cache for the given document.

    This can potentially provide 1000's of suggestions and affect performance when large schemas are used, so limiting the number of suggestions is advisable (see the Max.Suggestions property).

    Add closing </element> tags element suggestions

    Automatically creates the end element tag when a start element tag is completed, i.e. when the closing > tag is typed in <MyElement>, then the closing tag is added giving <MyElement></MyElement>

    Max. suggestions

    This is the maximum number of suggestions that will be offered in the drop down. If more options are available then they are not shown. When working with large schemas this setting can limit the results, but can prevent long delays when typing.

    Auto complete elements

    When checked pressing Ctrl-Space will auto complete the current element if a single option is available, i.e.

    <ns:broke

    Pressing Ctrl-Space after the 'e' will complete the element giving

    <ns:broker></ns:broker>

    If there are more than one option, then the intellisense suggestion box opens at the appropriate place.

    Auto complete element end tags

    When checked, the current element is automatically closed when </ is typed.
