...when one types text
if there is intelligent help to allow suggestions, picks, ... and accepting of them
-1. a good typist can often outperform these gimmicks, but sometimes the gimmicks are helpful
-2. the idea is that the gimmick not get in the way and cause hesitation, or CLONK moments
-3. more importantly the gimmick must follow a general convention that is used in all apps
-4. the flow must be fluid, not hindering, with minimum triggering, consistent with no.3
-5. so, I type SELECT * FROM DB.
-6. the period causes the dropdown to appear and the TABLE I need is the selected one
-7. I press TAB CLONK! a key that normally means accept and continue to type
-8. I click it CLONK! it wants a double-click

dropdown is pretty good just needs minor tweaking
-9. if I had chosen to type on... dropdown is not used and disappears once I type the full table name correctly good
-10. if I press enter while a table is selected, I can keep typing-on, not hindered. good
-11. TAB should be added as an accept key sequence, equal to Enter
-12. a double-click**(overkill in this context)**, if I have to go to the mouse, 1 click is better
Note: I will never go to the mouse, no need, I AM ON THE KEYBOARD
-13. if I stay on the keyboard(preferably) then up/down to quickly select Enter(that works good) or TAB(that fails)

Steps to reproduce - self evident

Operating system - WIN7 Pro

SQLiteStudio 3.2.1
