Create a new snippet. Enter the following dynamic hotspot from the documentation as the snippet content:


Now trigger the text. "Snippet1" will appear as expected, but presseing "tab" changes the text to "Snippet2". Pressing "tab" again does not change the text to "Snippet3", it moves the cursor to the end of "Snippet2".

This seems like a bug. I would think that arrow keys would change among options, but "tab" should not, it should advance the cursor.

Yes this is a bug. Thanks for your report.

I would like to add to this item, if I may.

I am using Notepad!! 6.3 and FingerText v560. I am not experiencing the tabbing issue described above. However, I cannot change options with the arrow keys and must just accept the first option.

OS: Win7 sp1
Other plugins: Column sorting, Converter 3.0, Hex-Editor 0.9.5, NppExport 0.2.8, NppFTP 0.2.4, Spell-Checker 1.3.3, TextFX 0.2.6

I have the same issue that ghost.

I'm under windows 10 and npp 6.8.8 and fingertext 5.60
