digitalmars.D - Autocompletion not working on Xamarin Studio for D

Hi!

I am trying to write some code in D using Xamarin Studio, but 
it's not autocompleting the code as I would expect. For example, 
it does not even gives you autocompletion for libraries, but 
apparently only for the language's primitives, i.e. keywords, 
etc. Is this the expected behaviour or is there's something wrong 
with my settings?

Thanks!

Yes, I was forgetting to include the link the libraries. I hadn't use Xamarin for a while and I remembered I had to set up Xamarin for D, but meanwhile I removed the D compiler, updated Xamarin, etc, and it might be that these settings were reset.

I'm not infront of a computer right now, but there should be something in the menus where you can specify the location of phobos imports. IIRC, its in the Mono-D global preferences pane. If you google for Mono-D installation, you should be able to find this info pretty easily. Bit
