JetBrains Rider 2020.2 Help

Go to Symbol

Navigate | Go to Symbol...

This command allows searching by name for any code symbol (type or type member) within symbols and files in your entire solution as well as all assemblies referenced in the projects of your solution.

Note that this command works in global scope, that is you do not need to bring your focus to the editor to invoke it.

Navigate to a symbol

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+N or choose Navigate | Go to Symbol... from the main menu . Alternatively, you can press Ctrl+Shift+A, start typing the command name in the popup, and then choose it there.

  2. In the Enter symbol name popup that appears, start typing the item name. As you type, the lookup list narrows down, suggesting names that match the entered substring.

  3. Optionally, select Include non-solution symbols or press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+N to display matching items from libraries referenced in the solution.
    By default, as long as your input matches something in your solution, only solution items are displayed. If there are no matches for your input in the solution, JetBrains Rider starts looking for matching library types automatically.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • Click the desired item to open it in the editor.

    • Select the desired item by pressing Up and Down and then press Enter to open it in the editor.

    • To view and analyze the list of matched items in the Find window, click Open in Find Window icons.general.pin_tab.png, press Shift+Enter or + on the numeric keypad .
