I am a new comer and learning how to use Eclipse C++ CDT.

I notice that after using [Content Assist] after the second [::], then the caret position will automatically jump to the head of next line.

Here comes an example.

Typing "chrono::" and using [Content Assist] to become
"chrono::system_clock", the caret will not jump and stay after "system_clock".

Typing "chrono::system_clock::" and using [Content Assist] to become
"chrono::system_clock::duration", the caret will jump to the head of next line.

Where should I configure to change the behavior of caret?

I try to configure the related setups in the preference about caret and content assist, but still can't change the caret behavior.

Caret position should stay after the content which is generated by the content assist instead of jumping to next line.

Thank you very much if this annoying problem can be solved.
