Description alonsoac 2002-06-12 06:53:24 UTC
"Word Completion" or "Autocomplete" is used in Writer and is configured 
in "Autocorrect/Autoformat" menu. But in Calc it is called Auto Input and is 
activated in menu "Cell contents". I think it is hard to find the autocomplete 
option under "cell contents", specially if it's called Auto Input. It took me 
some time to find it.
There should be at least a reference (in the manual and the window) so that if 
someone is looking for autocomplete it would be easy to locate the auto input

I'll have a look, Peter
Comment 2 ingenstans 2002-07-22 09:57:33 UTC
I agree strongly with the need to flag cell-contents->auto-input in the help system, 
manual, and FAQs even though the auto-input function is not quite the same as 
autocorrect/autoformat: it seems automatically to complete cell contents with 
entires taken from higher up the column. This can be very irritating, and very 
difficult to discover how to turn off. What's more, the changes made by that system 
can't be corrected by Ctrl-Z/Undo. That flaw may be related to issue

Hi Falko,
changing the current state could enhance overall consistancy.
