In the Languages autocomplete file (%installdir%\plugins\APIs\%Language%.xml), the additionalWordChar="" field is ignored, making it impossible to add non A-Z and _ words to the list.

    paramSeparator="" seems to be ignored as well.
    Non-function autocomplete words do not offer hints.

    The problem is actually a combination of issues:

    1. The "Environment/additionalWordChar" attribute for the auto-completion XML files
      (in %installdir%\plugins\APIs\%Language%.xml) does not work.

    2. When the "Environment/additionalWordChar" attribute is fixed, the auto-completion XML files in Notepad++/plugins/APIs must be revised to use it.

    3. There does not appear to be anything wrong with the "Environment/paramSeparator" attribute, once these other problems are addressed.

    For auto-completion in HTML we need additionalWordChar and spaces in startFunc and paramSeparator !!!

    Please support this Ticket with a message so they solve this asap in a next release of NotePad++

    thanks

    The original Bug Ticket #4027 only concerns the "additionalWordChar" attribute for the "AutoComplete/Environment" element. A patch for Bug Ticket #4027 has been posted.

    If anyone thinks there is a problem with other attributes (e.g. "paramSeparator", "startFunc") for the "AutoComplete/Environment" element, then separate Bug Tickets should be posted accordingly. At the very least, THIS patch might then have a chance to be included in a release in the near future.

    I've run into this with spaces, it would be good to see this fix released
