Description

If I write down a short string to search for and I get a long suggestion that almost matches what I want to find there is no way to get that completion value and edit it as needed.

STR:

1. Load https://orion.eclipse.org/examples/editor/demo.html
2. Go to textview.js.
3. Go to filter input and type: @getline.

Now try to use any of the suggested values. Up/Down jumps the editor to the method definitions only. The Right and Enter keys do not give the suggested value.
What would be the benefit of completing @getline to @getLineTrim? The source editor has already jumped to the right location.

Ah, sorry I missed this :) Yeah, this could potentially be beneficial.
Priority: -- → P3
So, this bug is essentially about tab completion for search results, no?
