    Description of Capx

    Nothing. It's just an empty capx for this bug report not to be deleted instantly. The problem can be reproduced in the editor, not related to a specific project.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Add an event or action that requires some input data from an expression (for ex. Set size, etc..).
    • Start typing into the input field for the suggestion list to appear.
    • Press space. Now the selected suggestion has been chosen instead of writing a space character.

    Observed Result

    While having the suggestion list appeared in any input field, pressing the space bar selects the currently highlighted suggestion from the list instead of writing the space character.

    Expected Result

    Pressing the space bar should only write a space character and not act as a confirm key to select the currently highlighted suggestion. Suggestions should be selected with only the ENTER key.

    Affected Browsers

    This bug is not related to any browser, just the editor.

  • Please always attach a relevant .capx; you could have included some group names and a 'set group active' action to demonstrate this better. I managed to reproduce it anyway, so the next build disables space as an autocomplete character for function name, group and animation parameters since their names can include spaces.

    Thank you for looking into this. The next time I'll make sure to attach a more detailed capx.
