I have project with class that has property with type od inner class.

When I create instance of the outer class in my main, the intelisense cannot complete the members of inner class.

it happen also in your demo Python Editor (Python Lang. Add-on).

open file by "Open Document", and set "Locate Standard Lib" to the root project folder.

file content:
class innerClass:

file content:
import innerClass
class outerClass:
    inst = innerClass.innerClass()

file content
import outerClass

def main():
    outCls = outerClass.outerClass()

The current logic for the resolver doesn't reach out from external modules into other external modules to try and resolve types.  What ends up happening is that the "inst" field doesn't resolve to a type in "" when its completion is requested while editing "" in a SyntaxEditor.  That is something we've wanted to enhance for a while and we hope to add for v24.1.

We are having similiar issues and hope to see improvements in the future. Are the already improvements in the current beta version?

Best regards, Tobias Lingemann.
