First, Ranorex is built on an old version of SharpDevelop (3.2 to be specific). So, if there are issues with the core IDE, I would check to make sure it works in SD 3.2. If it doesn't, then there may not be anything the Ranorex team can do.

Second, SD 3.2 (and, therefore, Ranorex) does not recognize some newer .NET libraries for Intellisense and code-completion. I've had issues with .NET 4.0/4.5 libraries such as LINQ and Lambdas. SD 3.2 was built for .NET 3.5, so it doesn't understand the newer .NET 4.0/4.5 specific structures.

Third, I usually only have issues with Intellisense if I have forgotten to close a code block or parenthesis, so check to make sure you code is formatted correctly.
Shortcuts usually aren't...
