I just want to move the focus on this suggestion again and complement it with some little annoyances using autocomplete.
The same word is displayed several times but with different symbols at the end
To me a waste of the rather limited entries (I already increased it to 16 entries).
More annoying is the matter that not all possibilities are offered.
- When I have 'Foo.bar' and type 'b' nothing is displayed for word completion.
- When I have both 'Foo.bar' and 'Foo.rab' and type 'Fo' I get both 'Foo.bar' and 'Foo.rab' but I just wanted 'Foo'.
This may seem funny, but I program in the relational not in the object oriented world.
I suggest a file type configuration, possibly completion.tmPreferences, where the use of symbols like '.;,' can be adjusted.
Also, it would be very convenient if I could select the item by simply typing the following letters and enter - rather then bothering the cursor keys.
Maybe the list of possible completions will be adjusted after each letter to show words which could not get in to the list due to the limited entries.
