I know I've seen this discussed before, but can't find anything now with
a definitive answer or solution/work-around. To select a particular item
from content-assist, we have to use the Enter key. Is there any way
(preference, third-party plugin, whatever) to make the Tab key do the
same thing. In other words, content-assist pop-up is open, an option in
it is highlighted, and Tab key is used to choose that item and insert it
into the editor (instead of Enter).
I have some coworkers who are coming from XCode and it's "irritating"
them since their fingers are conditioned to using Tab; so I'm looking
for a definitive answer.

Thanks,
Eric

The answer is 'no'.
