Command for CodeCompletion MacOsx

Post by evstevemd » Mon Jan 23, 2017 1:23 pm

I cannot activate CC no matter what I do. I have tried:
CMD+Space
CMD+Return Key
Ctrl+Space

Not one of them is working.
What do you guys use on Mac? In Linux/Windows Ctrl+Space works fine

CMD-SPACE is already assigned by OSX, simply disable it from the "System Preferences" menu, or assign new shortcut for for code completion from Settings->Keyboard shortcuts

You're right. It works. I wanted to assign Ctrl+Space but in CL Shortcut assignment dialog could not find something like autocomplete or codecompletion. What is the name?

Just type "complete" the full phrase is: "Complete word"

Sorry for the necro post but I have not gotten permission to start new threads and this is the closed related post I can find.

Is there any way to change the keyboard shortcuts to use the actual ctrl key on mac os?

Coming from visual Studio under windows it feels a lot more natural to use the ctrl key than the cmd key to me.

Thanks

You can't change to use CTRL
If you will use Mac for a while, you will get use to it :)
After all, you do copy with CMD+C, CMD+V etc
