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. – egreg Nov 26 '15 at 22:23

    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. – Alan Munn Nov 26 '15 at 22:28
  • @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. – tankgong Nov 27 '15 at 2:55

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

enter image description here

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

TeXShop version 3.58

  • 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. – tankgong Nov 27 '15 at 2:54
