autocompletion using suggestion broken
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It used to be possible, if you wanted to search on (let's say) "the end", to simply type "th", wait for "The" to be autosuggested, press the down arrow to select it, press the right arrow, and get "The" as your typed input, with autosuggestions based on the whole word rather than the two characters of the word that you typed. For long, but common words, that's a real timesaver. Likewise, you could formerly select "The Egg" from the autocompletion menu, delete the last two characters, and amend it to "The End" if that's what you wanted to do. Quite useful if you get an autocompletion that's almost correct.

At some point in time SimpleSearch did change the content of the text box like that when you pressed the down arrow, but this feature was removed recently.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
