Notepad++: How to change Tab key to other key for auto-completion insert? Conflict with other plugin


I have installed the FingerText plugin. It uses Tab key to insert snippets. But default NP++ auto-complete also uses Tab and so FingerText is stepped on by the default – the default hint appears at first and it gets impossible for FingerText to insert its snippet.

How to set only Enter key for default hints and Tab key for FingerText hints? Now both Enter and Tab are used for default insertion. Let it be only Enter.

  • You can change command shortcuts by going to Settings -> Shortcut Mapper -> Plugin Commands. Make sure 'Trigger Snippet/Navigate to Hotspot' is the only command to which the Tab key is assigned.
