Add project references automatically
If we have a large solution and type class name which is situated in another assembly and current assembly doesn't have direct reference on it then reference should be added automatically.
It will be nice to have such possibility.
I moved this under IDE so the right team will see the idea.

e.g ConfigurationManager.AppSettings is used for all the projects. Its manual step to search and adding reference.
This could be a quick win to implement.

VB already has this, or something really close. I don't know why C# doesn't do the same.

Yes... This wastes time.. VS should add these references automatically.

ReSharper has had this feature for years. Why are you using Visual Studio without ReSharper?
