REQ: Full-fledged retroactive auto-completion

CafeTran already offers "retroactive" auto-completion, but it seems to be limited to a single word.


A suggestion by CT:

support


My typo:

suppp


Upon deleting the last P, "support" is suggested.


What I'm requesting is, go beyond a single word: please try memoQ if you don't understand what I'm talking about.


This is Predictive-Typing in MemoQ, right?


For now, If you enable Preferences>Workflow>Enable two-word hints, you can have two word (or more ?) suggestions for auto-completion in CT.


FYI, OmegaT has introduced fully-fledged auto-completion in 4.x series (The auto-completer now includes history prediction and completion, which means auto-completion is now available even without glossary entries or user-entered abbreviations. It is possible to disable individually auto-completer views.)

Yes, that's right. But as far as I know, two-word hints works forward only, not backwards.

CT has long been able to do history prediction, picking up the user's typing history in this project, including unbelievable typos as well!

Yes, correcting typos is a feature I enjoy too! 

Waiting ...

 

To elaborate on this.

Suppose there's "United Nations Security Council" in your glossary.

Currently, CT can suggest this entry after typing a few characters like "Uni."

My request is: when I have typed (or selected) "United Nations" (another entry) and typed "Sse" inadvertently, if I delete the last "se," CT suggests "United Nations Security Council" again.

As simple as it can be.
