I have started using TexStudio and TexMaker (as I think they are quite similar) but I have failed to find in the scarce documentation there is available (and a brief online searching) a shortcut that manually invokes auto-completion function. I am not talking about manually "adding" something to it; just invoking it.

(I am talking about the functionality provided in Eclipse with Ctrl + Space, Vim Ctrl + P and so on...)

If anyone knows where is this hiding please let me know.

  • Just use the standard "Esc" shortcut on a word to invoke auto-completion. Texmaker and Texstudio are completely different : they don't use the same editor component, the same pdf viewer and the syntax for the commands are different (Texstudio is only cloning the look and feel of Texmaker.) – user27168 Sep 26 '13 at 9:26

    In TeXstudio, use Ctrl+Space. – Tim Hoffmann Sep 26 '13 at 16:23
  • Well I was accustomed to VIM for writing my LaTEX documents, but now I tried to evaluate these editors since I heard quite good feedback for both of them. The auto-completion of VIM was invokable more proactively in my experience but anyway I'll try and evaluate them a bit more. Thanks for your input @TimHoffmann – jtimz Sep 29 '13 at 10:01

As pointed out by user27168, typing Esc invokes auto-completion in TeXmaker and (as pointed out by Tim Hoffmann) Ctrl + Space invoke that in TeXstudio.
