Users have complained about the new auto-complete feature, so we should add a preference to turn it off.

To add to this, the UI often freezes up when I'm trying to view the information_schema. I get this:

Sometimes it freezes during that fetch, sometimes it doesn't. Would be nice to disable always, or even on a database- or schema-level.

Yes unfortunately Postico is border-line unusable for me at the moment and I think it might be because of auto-complete. The database I'm connecting to has thousands of schemas that each have a dozen or so tables, so this might be why. In my case I just need the ability to disable the auto-complete entirely.

We shouldn't have shipped autocomplete without a way to turn it off -- sorry about that. While we are working on a way to disable it, you can use Postico 1.2.4 which does not have autocomplete:
