I only know this from autocompletion when you select the option with a backpointing yellow arrow (if I remember correctly). I've been bitten by this quite often ever since autocompletion was added to VAST. And I mostly "select" this option when it turns out wrong. But that is me pressing enter before my brain starts thinking ,-)

Does anyone else see this?
Since I have moved to 9.2 I am getting a formatting error.
self currentCount = self memberItems size
and the auto format turns it into
(self currentCount = self) memberItems size
which is no help at all.
If it made it
(self currentCount = self memberItems size) that would help but it puts the right bracket in as I type, not at the end of the line.
The simple answer is the expression that you show is highly ambiguous in terms of what is meant by 'self exportFileExtension, ';', self' followed by a completion request. Its simply can't possibly know what part of the expression you are referring to. This makes the smalltalk syntax tougher than any C language with regards to code completion. There are settings to change how precedence is presented if the way your "brain" works differs from that of the author "me".
Those settings should be described on that same page in the documentation as well.
