I have been using texstudio for a few weeks. I really like the auto-predict feature in this when we type some arguments and the suggestions are displayed in a drop-down menu. However, I find it annoying that I have to press the Enter key to select suggestions as it is messing with my muscle memory to press the Tab key for completion. Is there any way to re-assign these keys in texstudio? That is o use theTab key for completing the prediction instead of enter Thanks

As indicated in this answer, this shortcut is unfortunately hard-coded.

You can see in the source code the Qt::Key_Enter that captures if the enter key was pressed "hard-coded" into the program.

I have opened an issue to see if the developers would be willing to do anything about it.
