Description Petr Jiricka 2011-03-01 18:07:54 UTC
1. Create a schema-based XML document (e.g. web.xml in web project):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app xmlns=""

2. Place caret after the opening <web-app ...> element and press enter.
3. Code completion window with possible choices appears, so when I press enter again, it does not do what I intended - instead it selects a choice in the completion window. Or if I press up/down arrows, it again does not do what I intended.

This behavior is inconsistent with other file types.
Comment 1 Denis Anisimov 2011-03-15 09:25:31 UTC
I've removed the automatic completion popup if "entered text is empty".
It means that f.e. for special keys ( enter , space, up, down, .... ) there will
be no autocompletion.
But autocompletion still works for real entered text. I believe this is useful.
In case if you think autcompletion should be completely disabled please downgrade 
this issue and reopen it.

There is not other requests to remove this feature so I think it is useful 
( except reported really annoying problem with enter key ).

Comment 2 Marian Mirilovic 2011-03-15 10:10:55 UTC
TM = 7.0 - does it mean you fixed it into release70 branch directly?
Comment 3 Denis Anisimov 2011-03-15 10:18:33 UTC
No , sorry.
I've fixed it in the trunk .
Am I wrong ?
Comment 4 Petr Jiricka 2011-03-15 10:26:11 UTC
Thanks a lot Denis, I think the behavior as you describe it is good. I am marking this as a 7.0 candidate. 

What Marian meant - you should set TM to Dev, because right now this is only fixed in trunk (Dev). See:

I'm sorry Marian but I've tried to follow the procedure :

OK, I will fix into release70.
