Autocomplete backspace

#1 Autocomplete backspace

When using autocomplete, sometimes you want to change your mind on the keys you have already typed.

The natural way to do this would be to use the backspace key however the backspace key seems to do noting after the autocomplete has kicked in.

It would be nice (like the old ctrl-j) that when you press the backspace key, additional options are shown. However I would like to extend this.

With ctrl-j, you can only backspace to the point where you pressed ctrl-j. It would be nice to see the autocomplete window handle going back up until the last space/newline.

After further testing I must say the backspace key did not work for the old version of ctrl+J. However I still maintain it would be a nice feature to add to the new auto complete.

Yes, think also, would be better if backspace works.
In the moment, only space,up,down and enter work.

I agree with backspace too.

Another idea/improvement?

Is it possible to add also (beside backspace) CTRL-S (save),
to get back the focus to the editor?

regards Manfred
