Description

Use sources from symbol files when available

Select this check box to use debug information (PDB files) to find appropriate source files and use them to display and navigate the code.
If this check box is selected and the source files are available via the debug information, JetBrains Rider displays and navigates to the original source code.
If this check box is cleared or if source files are not available, JetBrains Rider decompiles the code.

Allow downloading from remote locations

Select this check box to enable downloading sources from Symbol Server or other remote locations. If symbol files are available both locally and remotely, JetBrains Rider will display local symbol files.

Decompile methods

Select this check box to decompile method bodies to C# code. If this check box is not selected, a metadata view with method signatures will be shown.

Symbol servers
