Atom 1.7.4 autocomplete not working


I’m wondering if anyone has had this same issue in the latest build.

Autocomplete shows up, but there’s no keypress to complete it.


Have you tried using the Keybinding Resolver (Cmd+. on OS X and Ctrl+. on other platforms)? It will show you what key Atom saw you press and the command that was triggered because of it.

Also, people have reported this kind of thing when using the Emmet package. If you have it installed, you may want to try Safe Mode to see if that fixes the problem. To launch Safe Mode:

  1. Completely exit all instances of Atom
  2. Launch Atom with the command atom --safe


ah yes. Safe mode it works fine. Any suggestions on how to keep Emmet and Autocomplete and make them play nice?


From what I understand, Emmet only expands on Tab, so if you could train yourself to use Enter for autocomplete … then I suppose that would work. Other than that, you’ll probably have to talk to the maintainers of Emmet for ideas. The FAQ contains instructions on how to contact the maintainers of any Atom package or theme:
