Title: Code completion in 20.03 abbreviates found items
Post by: tilmannreh on November 18, 2020, 09:39:47 am
Hello,

with C::B 20.03 I experience a very uncomfortable new behaviour of the code completion. In very many cases, the popup window with the suggestions is far too small and the found items are abbreviated to a very small number of characters (with an ellipse to show that the real items are longer).

This makes it impossible to find the right item in the list - they all look the same (particularly for register content defines of a microcontroller, where the first (say) 20 characters are exactly the same for very many defines).

I did not find any setting that might influence the width of the code completion popup.
How to fix?

Thanks,
T.

Go to Settings -> Editor -> Other editor settings and change Technology to Default

Thanks - but that setting is already "Default".
(I didn't change that, anyway...)
