I’m using the NaNoWriMo trial version, and cannot figure out how to get Auto Complete to work.
I’m used to Word & Pages, where the words automatically complete as I start to type them. I’ve got a character name with an special character in his name ('Vão, short for Estevão, from Portuguese), and while the name’s added into the auto-complete list, Scrivener will not auto-complete it. It’s a pain in the butt to have to either insert a special character each time I type his name, or to copy/paste from a prior use each time I need to use it.
I did a search in the forum, and turned up the “hit cmd-. or opt-esc” thing, but those don’t work, either – nothing happens. There’s nothing in the help docs that I can find that tell me how to turn on auto-complete, either, or even how to use the feature. What am I doing wrong?
