Description:
Seen in beta labs with these repro steps:

  1. Open Visual Editor.
  2. Select "Transclusion" from the "Insert" menu.
  3. Type some characters in the "New Template" text box.

In previous releases of VE, the user would get a list of template suggestions. That list of suggestions doesn't seem to be displaying anymore :(

This seems to work for me? Which browser is this in? (Tested in Mac/Chrome 31 and Mac/Firefox 25.)

Hmmm… this does now seem to be working in beta labs with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari on Mac OS. I successfully get transclusion template suggestions for the letters C, N, T, and W. My favorite suggestion so far is "Noble Pipe". Not sure what that is, but it's a great name for a transclusion template.

I'll update the automated browser test to search by one of the letters indicated above (rather than by "S", which doesn't currently return any suggestions).

This is again happening on betalabs.I dont see any template suggestion appearing.

OS: MAC OS X 10. 8. 5

Now the template suggestions are appearing.
