[Qt-creator] Autocomplete oddities

I’m having a couple issues with autocomplete, that I’m starting to wonder if I’m the only one. They’re pretty obvious issues, but no one has reported them (or I’m not searching on the correct keywords). I’m having the issue with the following Qt Creator, but I think I was having it with the previous released version too?

Qt Creator 4.0.0
Based on Qt 5.6.0 (MSVC 2013, 32 bit)
Built on May 10 2016 01:09:29
From revision 605ea627cc

For both of my issues, I did the following:

1.       Created a new Qt Widget based application

2.       In the MainWindow constructor, I’m trying to type the following line. Don’t worry about whether it makes sense to connect these two, this is just about how autocomplete is behaving, I’m not actually even going to compile this example:



Issue #1
When typing the example line, I type up to the first ‘&’ and get the following. I know at some point in the past, as soon as I’d type the ‘&’ autocomplete would suggest that I want to type “MainWindow” next, but that no longer happens.

Issue #2:
From the previous spot I type out “MainWindow::” by hand. After typing the second ‘:’ I get the popup of signal suggestions, but note how the item text in the list isn’t highlighted. You can see that the icon for the destroyed signal has a slight color difference (it’s a little more purple).

I’ve noticed that Issue #2 seems to correct itself after quitting Qt Creator and relaunching it, but Issue #1 seems to persist.

Am I the only one seeing this?
