Complete Selection

▪ Complete Selection completes a partially typed function name.
▪ This command reads your current selection (which should be a single word, or an insertion point following a word) and looks up possible completions in the list of all currently defined functions and variables.
▪ This command works only when you are connected to a Mathematica kernel.
▪ When there is only one possible completion, Mathematica automatically inserts the additional characters to finish what you have typed. Otherwise, a pop-up menu lists the various possible completions. To insert one of them, click the completion you want, or type another letter to reduce the list of possible completions.
▪ Press Backspace to cancel the pop-up menu.
▪ If the list is long, you can scroll the menu by moving the mouse up or down, or by using the arrow keys.
▪ Keyboard shortcuts: k ; k k
