Autocomplete in Search Dialog

There is an auto-complete feature in find and replace fields of the Search Dialog: if you have already searched for value with a typed prefix, this value will be automatically suggested/inserted into the corresponding field.

Search dialog with auto-complete feature

While there are controversial opinions about such feature: some request it as very useful, others think it is annoying, it was decided to make autocomplete behavior optionally.

Because this is a very tiny adjustment, this flag will not come in UI options but can be changed in XML settings directly.

In file settings.xml:


default value for search auto-completion is true (default values are skipped in xml files).

:!: This flag available from 1.50 version
