word completion? usually ctrl-w you can re-assign it to other keys (also to ctrl space, if you want).Though the code completion (ctrl-space) is smarter, as it chechs context.
Trouble is, you have to keep pressing the hotkey. How it works in Notepad++, is that suggestions appear as soon as you start typing.
I think it's because of the way Lazarus is implemented. It need to scan an parse a lot of code (not only the current file), in order to activate the code completion. Doing it, every time a key is pressed, could be heavy for the CPU.This code completion library: https://github.com/t-edson/SynFacilCompletion , can open the completion-list every time a key is pressed and some rules are followed.
Why would Lazarus have to check every file with code?
just perform word completion for the current .pas, exactly like Notepad++ does.
