Disabling Tab Button Selection of Auto-Complete.

As expected when starting a new word, the auto-complete box is shown and the first option highlighted.
In order to select an option from the box you can either hit
If you hit
space, then the auto-complete is cancelled and a
spaceis inserted into the text.
Can anyone tell me how to change it so as hitting
tabwould not select an option, but rather insert a

Hello, Chris Mckevitt,
Very easily, indeed ! Instead of pressing the Tab key, Chris, just hold down the Alt key and hit, successively, on the Numeric keyboard, the two
9keys => The auto-complete box is, then, closed and a single tabulation character (
\x09) is inserted, at the caret’s position :-)) Et voilà !
I verified that it’s OK, for, both ,completion of functions AND completion of words
Of course, it’s not as straight as hitting an unique key, but just consider it as a work-around !
