Subject Re: tab and autocomplete in calc ( issue 18748)

x2 means two times. Sorry I am tired.

Example:

1) enter raw

2) press tab -> active cell moves right

3) press r -> Autocomplete offers raw

4) press tab -> Excel does autocomplete; AOO nothing happens -> I think
consistent would be to auto complete and move right.

5) press tab -> Excel move right.


I am now off to bed ;) good night everyone.
