Autocomplete Plus | confusing behavior after confirm



i don’t understand the behavior when using Autocomplete in css files. Let’s say i type “vertical” and Atom shows me “vertical-align”. I hit Tab but in addition i have to type in the colon after. What else could come after “vertical-align”? Why i’ve to type the colon? Is this something i can change?

And after that, when i hit “ctrl-space” Atom shows me things like “a”, “acronym”, “address” … Why are there things which makes no sense and not only suggestions which match the “vertical-align”?


What can we do to improve autocomplete?

It’s an old topic, but I have the exact same concern, any ideas ?
When using the autocomplete I thought it would parse the rule followed by a colon and a space…
