Completion Proposals / Content Assist Sent by:
I'd like to give an example of how annoying small "improvements"
can be for existing users. Since a while (can't remember exactly what update
caused this) content completion behaves totally different and just gets
into my way. I was very used to use Java statement templates for things
such as for each loops, instanceof blocks and the like. I just typed "fore"
(cautiously with all lower case letters) followed by Control+Space and
the completin proposal list contained just the foreach template, so that
I could hit Enter without even looking at that list. But now the list looks
It even looks worse for the instanceof-template:
I somehow suspect that it was decided to not consider the case of my typing
anymore. Now all kinds of weird classes that I've not even heard of before
are considered better matches.
Then I thought, well, there must be a preference to turn this new behavior
off, but I couldn't find any on this preference page:
I could have submitted a bug against JDT (and probably will), but I thought
it would be a good to have a section in the new UI Guide about how best
to change existing functionality/workflow.
