Open: Text replacements can not be applied by clicking
« on: April 02, 2013, 12:22:45 AM »
I love the text replacement option in e.g., the keyword field, where you type a couple of symbols and then it shows you a list of suggestions to choose from. What is annoying though is that you can not apply a chosen replacement by clicking on the item in the list. Only hitting the enter key works.

This is counter intuitive and slows me down sometimes.

This issue is still present in PM5, hopefully it can be fixed though :)

Hayo,

If you're already typing on the keyboard, why wouldn't you just use the arrow keys/enter and keep on typing?  When would taking your hand off the keyboard and using the mouse ever be faster?

Because it is really much much quicker (and much more direct) to click with the mouse if the list is quite long :)
