[NEW] Trouble getting Visual Studio to pair up properly with Unreal Engine

Everytime I try to create a new C++ class, when I open it up in Visual Studio it doesn’t appear to be color coded (all the text is white), it’s only until i build/compile or “Refresh Visual Studio Project” that it starts to have color code + intellisense suggestions. I’m currently following a course on udemy and it doesn’t seem that the instructor has such issues. Is this normal, or is there something I can do to better setup Visual Studio for Unreal Engine?

I sometimes see this behavior in Visual Studio 2019. It takes a while for the colouring to appear. It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not linked to Unreal Engine. It should still work.

I just moved to the Rider IDE and it’s fantastic.
