Description ben2 2012-09-14 12:47:38 UTC
I'm a big fan of NetBeans code completion for Java. My issue is that it is very easy to disable a code suggestion (we use code suggestions because we are in a hurry - and the "Disable XXX Suggestion could easily be confused for "Insert XXX Suggestion"). However, I can find no way in the UI to turn suggestions back on.

I think if the UI is able to disable something, it should be able to re-enable it again. Thanks.

Oh I see, its under "hints" in the Options. Please be consistent - is the feature called "hints" or "code suggestions" or "code completion"?

In visual studio, "Intellisense" is well-defined feature, as is code-snippets, etc.
