X2? I know that F2 is used in excel to modify a cell in place.

Subject: tab and autocomplete in calc ( issue 18748)

Hello all,

this is a bad time where everybody is in christmas, but I just tried to
understand this one here.  -

The issue is that as soon as Autocomplete offer is active the tab key
does not work anymore.

Excel says you have to press x2, once for autocomplete one for moving right.

Consitsent in OpenOffice would be to accept the autocorrect as we do on
enter, but instead of moving down we move right.

What is you opinion on this? I think copy Excel is a _very_ weak
argument to do something.

Patches for this are available for review. So this one can be fixed
easily if we make an agreement on the direction we want to go.

Should be in for next version.

All the best
