Autofill in the field Person ( and Keywords )
« on: February 08, 2014, 09:26:29 PM »
Hi Kirk,

I loaded a text list with actor names to the field - Persons shown.
That works well. If I click on the triangle the list opens and I could choose the actor.
But that takes - because the list is long - to long :-(

If I have to go for Waltz Christoph long way down !
Is it possible that write in the field Persons shown - Wal.....
and the list goes up an show me the Actors with the name Wal... including Waltz Christoph ?

The more I type of the name .... the possible choice gets closer

:-) I am looking for the right words !!!

I now about code replacement - but to many actors - to much work - !

Iam looking for something like - Autofill if the PM if it finds the name !

That's what Autocomplete is for.  Have you tried adjusting your Autocomplete settings?

No, it won't spontaneously learn new words.  You would just add the words to the various editable lists in the IPTC dialogs.
