# Re: [isabelle] Remaining reasons for Proof General

new. However, the behaviour is… odd. It seems to complete as soon as
there is only one alternative left, i.e. "\alp" is turned into "α".
"\ta" is turne into "τ". When one types "\alpha", one gets "αha", when
one types "\tau", one gets "τu". So basically, if one wants to use this
feature, one has to remember what part of the abbreviation will lead to
there being only one possibly completion.

That is not exactly what I had in mind.

(On a related note, I also found that jEdit was quite slow; it takes
over a minute to start up on my laptop; Proof General is /much/ faster.)
