Clean unneeded usings


Is there a way to automatically clean unused usings in your project?

For example: in IntelliJ IDEA you can select a folder and right click on it and select "optimize imports", which cleans all the unused imports from your files.. A very handy tool, which I can't find in Xamarin Studio.

So my question: Is this feature hidden somewhere because I can't find it.

Kind regards,

    Try SlightlySharper from Add-in Manager in studio.

    @BetimDrenica, looks promising! I've installed it, but I can't find the key binding like the readme on Github says..

    "After installation, you can find additional keybinding(s) in 'Edit' -> 'Preferences' -> 'Keybinding' -> Schemes. The first one added is 'IDEA'."

    @WouterDS are you using Visual Studio too?

    @BetimDrenica: Nope, I'm on Mac.

    @WouterDS personally, hope Xamarin & JetBrains will do smth to bring Resharper in Studio.
    Now infrastructure is ready while studio has an add-in scheme, I think.

    If you have source analysis enabled, you can do this for each file, though you can't do it for the whole project at once.

    Man, I'm looking forward to do that 200 times.

    We're working on letting run such refactorings on the whole project. But source analysis is our 'spare time' project - we're not announcing it officially.
