I believe that that will soon enter your procedural memory. I also just
recently switched on this feature and from time to time write Γma, but
it becomes less often quickly. With this, entering fancy symbols becomes
quite nice.

There is still the problem that it relies on unique completions, and
some symbols don’t have short unique prefixes, e.g. \sqsubsete is not a
great win – but then, this symbol has [=, so I just have to get used to
that.

Greetings,
