Hi Daniel! Thanks for the question. You’re entirely right in noting that not all of the autocomplete functionality of the classic UI has been brought over to the next UI yet. Currently next offers autocompletions for a handful of things:
- Names of other cells
- Observable’s standard library
- Observable Inputs
- Plot charts
- Basic cell options like imports or for loops
However, we do not yet have support for a couple crucial types of autocompletions like local variables, object properties, and globals. This is very high on our list of functionality to bring from classic to next.
One small note, though, is that you can force the autocompletion menu open at any point with the ctrl-space shortcut in next, though it doesn’t look like that is documented in our help pane – I’ll add that ASAP!
I’ll also post an update on this thread once we’ve made more progress on next’s autocompletions. Thanks again for your message and for your patience! It’s really helpful to know about any aspects of the classic UI that are missed in next.
