I can't use my arrow keys to scroll through autocomplete options


I need help on what I am missing. I want to use my arrow keys to scroll up or down to pick my selection.

Is there a package or something i need to add to the keymap?



You should be able to do that automatically. Something must be going wrong.


not sure what I a doing wrong. I have double checked the packages I have, unless one of them might be interfering with the normal function of my keys.


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.

(It is also mentioned in the Debugging section of the Atom Flight Manual.)


Thanks, I will give that a try


For future reference. This happens to me awhile back and i solved it with adding this line into keymap.cson

'body atom-text-editor.autocomplete-active':
'up': 'autocomplete-plus:move-up'
'down': 'autocomplete-plus:move-down'
