Can autocomplete work like TextMate?

I'm switching to PHPStorm from TextMate and so far I'm loving it. One feature I kind of miss is TextMate's autocomplete feature. I know that PHPStorm does intelligent code completion and I like that, but sometimes I just want to repeat a word that I've already typed in the current file. In TextMate, I could just hit the escape key and it would cycle through strings that match the beginning of what I'm typing. If it's not a variable, function, class or method name, PHPStorm may not recognize it as something it can autocomplete for me. Is there a way to get the TextMate type autocomplete functionality to work alongside the PHPStorm code completion? Thanks.


Command maybe Cyclic expand word

alt / (forwards)

alt shift slash (backwards)


Exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!


I'm looking for this feature too.
But is it possible to have a auto popup just like normal autocompletion that we can choose from?
Saves more characters if we have long simliar names.


Sweet, that was the last feature I was looking for!



Just what I was looking for. Thanks!
