Complete your Word Automatically

The Complete command in the Edit menu pops up a menu of possible completions for an unfinished word, as shown below. The list learns new words—type a word once, then next time you start to type it, that word appears in the list. Frequently used words appear at the top.

  1. Start to type a word that you’re not sure how to spell or one that is long and you don’t want to type the whole thing.
  2. From the Edit menu, choose “Complete,” or press Option Escape (the esc key in the upper-left of the keyboard). A menu like the one shown below will appear.
  3. If the word you want is already highlighted at the top of the list, just hit Return. If not, use the Down arrow key to select a word and then hit Return, or double-click on the word you want.
