TAB key autocompletes "indigo"

TAB key autocompletes "indigo"

Postby Gravy on Wed Feb 15, 2012 6:58 am

Everytime I hit the TAB key after any character with no auto-completion of its' own, other than a space it auto-completes itself to "indigo".

This is really painful since I'm often wanting to insert TABs.

Sublime Text uses complex neuro-receptive quantum mechanics to make the autocompletion behave like a mood ring. Indigo means you're heartbroken. I always get "crimson" (I'm an angry coder...).

In all seriousness though, that's probably a plugin such as Zencoding. What plugins do you have installed? What language are you working in?

I find this happens as well, but not all the time. I suppose the first of the following settings controls this, but I'm reluctant to disable it.

Code: Select all
    // When enabled, pressing tab will insert the best matching completion.
    // When disabled, tab will only trigger snippets or insert a tab.
    // Shift+tab can be used to insert an explicit tab when tab_completion is
    // enabled.
    "tab_completion": true,

    // Enable auto complete to be triggered automatically when typing.
    "auto_complete": true,

The comment states that Shift-Tab should ignore the completion, although I tend to press Space, then Tab - as the extra space doesn't concern me too much.

Added: Although, as stated (just now) by COD312, it might be a plugin that's responsible.
