Swift in 3.3: How to disable autocomplete when declaring new variable names?

When trying to assign a new variable, autocomplete activates and keeps trying to suggest variable names based on past variables or methods.

For instance, if trying to declare an SKSpriteNode named "sprite", I will get:

and without consciously remembering to hit ESC before pressing space to continue typing, it will pop out a method name, and I have to go clean it up.

It's actually worse when I have a variable name similar to a named parameter, as sometimes i might not notice the difference and wind up with an annoying bug.

Is there any way to disable autocomplete for when you are typing variable names?


Charles, thanks for reporting and sorry for the inconvenience, we'll fix this problem in the following bug-fix updates.
Meanwhile, you can disable the auto-completion popup in Editor | Genera | Code Completion | Autopopup... - you still be able to invoke the completion with shortcuts (Ctrl+Space, Ctrl+Shift+Space).


Thanks, Anton, I'll go with that for now.
