Description pekarna 2011-02-17 23:56:46 UTC
When editing pom.xml, the code completion menu appears way too often - almost on every key stroke.


1) Edit some pom.xml
2) Have a cursor somewhere between tags
3) Press enter - popup appears, press escape
4) Press space - popup appears, press escape
5) Press Ctrl+V - popup appears, press escape

etc etc.

I'd let it show only on Ctrl+space like with Java.

Code completion is invoked automatically by SchemaBasedCompletionProvider.

As a temporary workaround you can switch off "Auto Popup Completion Window" in Tools -> Options-> Editor -> Code Completion.

Reassigning to xml.schema.completion

Report from old NetBeans version. Due to code changes since it was reported likely not reproducible now. Feel free to reopen if happens in 8.0.2 or 8.1.
