@ Pinging in parentheses doesn't auto-suggest


(Clay Heaton) #1

I frequently find that I want to @ ping somebody following a particular comment, and that I want to do it in parenthesis. Example:

  • Get a list of the prices (@clay)

The annoyance is that the @ helper list does not pop up when the @ follows an opening parenthesis (@clay ...) or other punctuation, such as a -.

While the ping works when the name is typed in, it’s useful to have the helper popup list because I can see their full name and make sure I pick the right person.

I suspect it works this way so that people can enter email addresses without the helper list popping up?

Anyhow, if you have a list somewhere of minor annoyances, I think this belongs on it.


Mentions don't auto-complete after `(`

A simple insertion of a space does the trick.

Yes, I’m aware of that. It’s the reason I file this under minor annoyances.

I made a fix so this works now.
