Autocompletion doesn't work properly, what could be the reason?
First of all I’d like to appretiate the author of Notepad++ for their efforts for making such an awesome piece of software. I use it every day and it helps me a lot. But recently I’v faced some trouble - when I try to use the autocompletion for some keywords it doesn’t work. When I start typing a word I see the list of options, then I select one of them by arrows buttons on my keybord and then I press Enter. But instead of autocompletion Notepad++ handles the push as a regular Enter push without autocompletion - it inserts a new line and so on. What could be the reason?
Thank you beforehand
What could be the reason?
Read this post and follow the link to the online manual. It’s a setting that you can change.
@Terry-R Thank you, it helped. It is not obvious for me that Enter could be used for something else during classical autocompletion, but it’s only my oppinion though. Have a nice day!

I will admit the tab key would not have been my “default” choice but the developer is allowed to select whatever they think is appropriate. It’s up to the user (that’s you) to see the problem and hopefully read the manual to find the reason. Luckily the developer puts in lots of settings that can be changed to suit the users preference.
