SQL Developer: Autocomplete

Author: Jacek Trociński, Last Revision: 2020.11.12, Topic area: SQL Developer 19.2

Change autocomplete settings in SQL Developer so that suggestions pop-up automatically more often.

By default autocomplete will automatically pop-up only if it finds less than ten suggestions to display or if forced to display by pressing CTRL + space.

To change the default behavior go to Preferences -> Code Editor -> Completion Insight and decrease the pop-up speed so that suggestions appear faster and then increase the number of matches that will suppress automatic pop-ups so that automatic suggestions appear more often.
