The most recent version 3.57 seems only supporting autocomplete with a general list of possible words instead of from the words that have been typed. It was asked in an early post TeXshop and autocompletion but the issue remains.

So I wonder if words that have recently been typed in Texshop will appear at the top of the autocomplete list, so that they can be selected easily. I have searched Texshop help but did not see it.

    It is supported; I tried typing xyzzy (that shouldn't be a known word) and it appears in the list upon typing xy and hitting ESC.

    The linked post was closed because TeXShop does use the OSX autocomplete. So if you type a completely novel word it will appear in the list of potential words.

  • @AlanMunn By "recent words" I mean the words that have recently been typed in the document will appear at the top of the autocomplete list, so that they can be selected easily.

Autocompletion with recent words is supported. In the picture I show what I see when typing xy and hitting the ESC key.

You can clearly see the word, along with other possible completions from some dictionary.

  • I see you mean that a novel word will be added to the dictionary. But by "recent words" I mean the words that have recently been typed in the document will appear at the top of the autocomplete list, so that they can be selected easily.
