"Press TAB to expand wildcard" doesn't always work

Open a query windows and do a ssf.
Code: Select all
Select *
From master.sys.sysobjects As s

Go up to the asterisk and back it out and type s.*. You will be prompted with a tooltip to "Press TAB to expand wildcard". Press TAB and the asterisk remains. Backspace back to the asterisk and get the tooltip again, and it press TAB, and it works.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for reporting this, it looks like it was a knock on from the fix we did so tab didn't always expand a snippet name. In the case you've got I don't think the suggestions list should have been shown at all.
We've got a fix for this internally and we'll do some more testing around the edge cases to make sure we haven’t missing anything else. We've got a few new features and fixes we're currently testing so our next beta build will probably be on Monday. I'll reply again once it's up.
