I'm a little confused as to how to troubleshoot this issue.

When I'm not using imports, and I auto-complete (ctrl-space), I get a flyout with documentation built from comments just above the cross-reference.

I'm talking about the yellow-ish box to the right of the auto-complete suggestion as displayed in this image:

When I use an import, the flyout does not appear.

However, if I hover over the element after choosing it, I do get the doc-box.

I'd prefer that imports worked the same as locally defined elements. That way, end users can quickly filter through suggestions and see a little more information about what each suggestion does.

Is the behavior I'm experiencing indicative of a problem with my eclipse setup, my grammar configuration, or do I just need to override the default behavior?

If I need to override the default behavior, what class/method am I looking for?

Edit:
I do see the following log message in my eclipse console repeatedly. I haven't gotten to tracking it down just yet, but I have noticed this before and it does appear whenn the working (non-import) file as well as the file that uses the import:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.ui 4 4 2013-03-20 13:10:41.656
!MESSAGE Conflicting handlers for org.eclipse.ui.edit.text.contentAssist.proposals: {ActionHandler(org.eclipse.ui.texteditor.ContentAssistAction@20fb055a)} vs {org.eclipse.xtext.ui.editor.handler.ContentAssistHandler}

excellent! a new toy! Smile

EDIT: I'll save the further questions (hopefully) until I can find a way to contribute around here. You've done a fantastic job with this Christian (and I'm sure others who's names I don't know). I'm quite impressed with this project, and I don't want it to feel like I'm just leeching off of your free advice.
