Dear all,

I use BibDesk on several Macs,  which are in some cases not the  
newest ones.
I usually like the autocompletion of BibDesk, when I enter keywords  
or the name of a journal. It keeps things more homogeneous. But ...

My problem: When large bibliography files (e.g., 7500 citations,  
3.2MB) are edited, I manage to enter a full line of text, but without  
seeing it, because BibDesk tries to match the entries with its stored  
authors, keywords, and so on. I have to wait, however, until BibDesk  
has finished its comparison of all entered words, before I can go to  
the next text field.

Especially for titles of articles, etc., it does not make sense IMHO  
to have this feature of autocompletion.

Is it possible to switch this feature off?

Thanks for any advice on this,
