I wish Outlook had autocomplete...

Isn't it time even Word and other apps support basic autocomplete..?

    I would hate that. Just point mistakes and let me choose whether or not to correct them, but please don't change my text without my consent! I already hate smartphones for that

    @TheOct0 yes, I don't want it to correct like "autocorrect". Just show me a list of suggestions and let me choose from it.

    @Raamakrishnan Well that's already there as grammar correction, isn't it?

    @Raamakrishnan Or do you mean autocomplete, like IDEs?

    IIRC, LibreOffice has this functionality. It shows you a popup or something with a word that starts with the letters you are typing, then you press enter key and it will complete that word.

    There's already plenty of that autocorrect shit out there.. sometimes useful, often annoying as fuck :/ email clients should really not get it. Especially since basic proofreading before sending your message can go a long way.

    @TheOct0 yes like that!

    @Condor I'm not talking about autocorrect. I'm talking about autocomplete like "IntelliSense". Just a quick way to write things.

    @cafecortado will check that out!

    @Raamakrishnan gibe de Big Data plz for natural language processing Blockchain AI (:
    Honestly though, autocomplete on desktop.. on mobile I can understand it since typing on glass is shit.. but when you've got a full keyboard at your disposal? Eh, not worth the extra data provision IMO.

    @Condor well, you use auto complete in your IDEs...
    And btw, what are those random words in your comment?

    I don't use autocomplete in my editor either 🙂 I'm using vim here. Syntax highlighting and automatic indenting is all I need.
    As for the random buzzwords, my apologies for the brainfart 😅

    @Condor Even vim has amazing plugins for autocomplete. Just saying, if you feel like using it anytime
