Keybind to validate auto-completion
 
Hello,

someone just taught me how to call for emotes with "/em".

This shortcut is usefull to avoid using mouse.

The problem is :

If I want to play Emote "Salute", I'll type "/em sal", and "Salute" choice appears.

Then i can push KEYDOWN to highlight "Salute".

But if I push "Enter", it sends "/em sal".

What is the keybind (on keyboard) to validate auto-completion ?

Take your hand off the keyboard, catch the mouse, aim for you choice and click is far too long compared to simply push "enter".

I just cant believe autocompletion was implemented but no key let you validate.

Please help me.

It actually should allow you to autocomplete using the arrow keys and pressing enter on the selection you would like, so it appears that there is a bug with this at the moment. I'm moving this to the gameplay bugs section so QA can take a look.

Brandon, this also occurs with captain names. Pre-S6, you could type the first few characters of a name, and when it came up, enter would finish the auto-complete and let you continue typing. Doesn't work any more.

Thanks a lot to both of you.

I was quite sure I wasn't posting in the good Forum category.

Same issue with names when sending mail. You arrow down to the desired recipient, but when you hit 'enter' the cursor jumps to the subject box, and the recipient box is left with whatever you had typed.
