We can use operator with arrays. But when we use code template named 'forin' (for in loop) Delphi declare new variable of TObject type, that is not correct
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Declare array of any type
type MyArray: array of string;
2. Set cursor in some procedure of function body
3. Enter 'forin'
4. Press Ctrl+Space, code insight appears and we see that there is 'forin' template. Use it
5. Enter 'myvar' in 'MyElem' point and 'MyArray' in MyList point. Press Tab to end template
6. After that we have new variable myvar: TObject but MyArray is string array

For this to work along the lines of what you expect, the DeclareVariable call in the live template would need to figure out the base type of the enumerator, which is certainly possible, but definitely not implemented yet.

See for a new forint-Template which asks for the type of the iterator variable.

Additionally I'd recommend changing type and severity to C2, maybe C1. This is most definitely not a show stopper.
