Auto-Complete - Popup List
Menu: Configure > Auto-Complete
Default Shortcut Key: none
Macro function: none
The Popup List tab of the Configure Auto-Complete dialog contains options that relate to the presentation of the popup list of matching words.
Display a popup list of matching words/phrases as text is typed
Use this checkbox to indicate whether or not the popup list box should appear while text is being typed. When disabled, the popup list can still be displayed using the Auto-Complete List command.
Don't show popup list until at least n characters have been typed
Use this option if you prefer that the display of the list be determined by the number of characters that have been typed. When this option is used, the popup list will appear as soon as 'n' characters have been typed, provided there are matches available.
Don't show popup list until n or fewer matching phrases exist
Use this option if you prefer that the popup list not be shown until the number of matches falls below a certain threshold. When this option is used, display of the popup list will be suppressed until enough typing has occurred to narrow the list to a given number of matching words.
Number of lines displayed in popup list
This option controls the number of visible entries in the popup list -- ie, the height of the list.
Maximum number of items in popup list
This option controls the maximum number of items that will appear in the list. If this values exceed the number of lines, a vertical scroll bar will be added to the list.
Don't show suggestions with fewer than n characters
Use this option to specify the shortest word that should appear in the popup list.
Whenever possible, position the popup list above/below the current line
Use this option to specify where the popup list will appear in relation to the current line. When the current line is near screen top or screen bottom, the list may need to be moved to keep it on-screen.
