This is very surprising and worrying. I genuinely have had zero issue
with Intellisense and Outcome, and I use Visual Studio for everything
including my Linux programming. I've been using Outcome for two years in
Visual Studio, and seen no problems at all apart from the usual
Intellisense ones.

Just to test it there, I opened up AFIO v2 in VS2017, chose a random
source file and on a line did:


... and Intellisense correctly popped up all the possible member
functions as it usually does. Each item is missing its documentation
bubble, but I always found those virtually useless anyway, the doxygen
comment doesn't fit.

Are you guys doing something unusual?
