When typing two commands after each other, auto-completion opens already after the \ of the second command.

example:
\nu completer is still open (ok so far)
\nu\ completer is still open and yiels all commands starting with \. However it should close here and just open again after typing the next char.

Discussion

  • why?

    isn't is useful to see all commands? i think you often type many commands directly behind each other (e.g. in math mode)

    I'm just indicating a slight inconsistency:
    a) typing a single command: the completer opens at the first letter.
    b) typing two commands: the completer stays open and shows all commands on the second \
    c) two commands, but using the completer for the first command: completer closes after the first one and opens at the first letter of the second one.

    I think the time the completer opens should not depend on the way of editing.
