Variable name completion?

jmsaltzmanjmsaltzman Member Posts: 9 PRO
I'm curious about help filling in variable names: is there a "completion" feature?
For instance, if I have a variable named "hole_clearance," is there a way to type "#h" and have the rest filled in, or to pop up a list of variables starting with "h" if there's more than one?

    Not yet, but OS have a pretty fast development rate, and it's something they know we want...

    No sure if there's an existing improvement request, if so you can vote on it to get it moved up the priority list, if not you can raise one.
