Auto-complete fails for dot sourced variables in collection project

I'm currently trying to organize a project that has several different forms that share variables and functions that I currently have to update in every file each time I want to change one. I'm working on placing all of these into a Global.ps1 file, but when I dot source this file I want to be able to use auto-completion (I believe it's called PrimalSense in PS Studio?) when referencing the variables and functions. A multiform project will not work for this situation, as the previous form must be closed after the next one is called. I'm currently using a collection project, and that allows the functions to show up in auto-completion when dot sourcing, but not the variables--even after setting the Shared property on Globals.ps1 to true. Is this intended behavior?

Yes, we use the term PrimalSense. At this time, our dot sourcing PrimalSense does not collect the variable information. I highly recommend submitting a feature request here:
