Are you unable to type in Visual Studio?

Today I was writing some jasmine tests using my favourite IDE  – Visual Studio and everything was going well. All of a sudden, I was unable to type in Visual Studio (VS). At first, I checked my external keyboard followed by mac’s built-in keyboard which were working as expected in notepad and on mac but not in VS!!!

To solve any VS related issue, I just restart it and maybe also restart my Windows. Even that didn’t helped! Later on, I came to know via googling that Resharper is the main culprit causing this strange issue. Something may have gone wrong where Resharper’s cache was affected and it just causes this issue.

To solve this behaviour: Select Resharper Menu option => Options => Envrionment => General => Click ‘Clear Caches’ button => Hit Save

When you clear the cache, Resharper says that caches will be cleared after VS restart. So, restart it and if you are lucky, it will now respond to your keyboard inputs.
