  • Completion proposal auto-activation without pressing CTRL-Space after typing compiler-dependent characters, for example, "." in ATASM, "." or "#" in MADS, and "!" in ACME.
  • Multi-line content completion and explicit cursor positioning, for example, ".MA" becomes ".MACRO <cursor is here> <newline> .ENDM".
