The autocomplete function can easily be more functional if it would count and
prioritise words that have a similar beginning. The more a word is in a
document, the higher should be it's autocomplete priority. Currently, if I have
a document containing 'distribution' 10 times and 'distribute' 1 time, before
'distribution', OO will constantly suggest 'distribute' every time I write
'distr...' until I come to 'distributi...'. And that's a bit late. I would like
OO to suggest 'distribution' instead. Which is easy, if based on the number of
times it is in the document.

Reassigned to Bettina.

In 1.1Beta2 this same thing happens.  It seems to go in Alphabetical
order instead of by how many times it is used in a document.

I am confirming this issue.

SBA: I changed the summary. Reasons:  
1. To SUMMARIZE the description (instead of the submitters feelings :-) Note
that a summary's purpose is to summarize (and not to be a "catchy line") - This
is an issue tracker and not a newspaper...
2. Tto be useful in terms of "have strings relevant to the subject in the
summary in order to ease queries" (That's why I stumbled into this one again)
3. The old summary ("autocomplete could be more intelligent") sounds a little
like "stupid implementation" :-)
Comment 5 padranch 2008-12-29 21:20:43 UTC
I understand what you mean, but at the same time you have to be careful about 
how you implement it.  I.e. if 'distribution' appears 2 times and 'distribute' 
appears 1 time, it could be very frustrating to see 'distribution' when you 
want 'distribute'.  An option could be to display a different sugestion when 
the user hits the down arrow key.  (Just a suggestion)

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
