ReSharper 2024.1 Help

Namespace Imports

ReSharper options: Code Editing | C# | Namespace Imports

This page contains options that affect the way ReSharper optimizes namespace import directives in existing codebase.

ReSharper also allows you to adjust a number of settings that affect the namespace import style. You can view and change these settings on the Code Editing | C# | Syntax Style page of ReSharper options Alt+R, O.

Remove only unused aliases

Keep if the alias name differs from the symbol name

If the Remove only unused aliases checkbox is selected, you can opt to keep non-trivial alias using directives, even though they are redundant. Otherwise, ReSharper removes all redundant using directives.

Namespaces that should not be removed

ReSharper will not report usings of these namespaces as redundant, and will not remove them while running code cleanup.

Namespaces that should be always imported

ReSharper will always add usings for these namespaces while running code cleanup.

Namespaces that should never be removed from fully qualified type names

ReSharper will not report these namespaces in fully qualified type references as redundant, and will not remove them while running code cleanup.
