So the autofill for macdive is....aggressive to say the least. Is there a way to disable autofill, or just show the drop down and not have it force insert text into the line I'm trying to type?

Weather and current are the biggest offenders of this, it's all over but that's the most annoying fields.

It's hard to explain but basically, the autofill is forcibly inserting itself on any hit after I press space, comma, period (any non-character hit). I end up having to just accept the incorrect autofill and then going back and deleting stuff.

It's particularly problematic on those fields since they tend to be some of my longest entries and the default for weather is "Warm, overcast with occasional strong showers, mild to strong surface winds, fog at end of dive" and that inserts itself forcibly anytime I want to type warm and hit space, comma, period (or any words in that string)... have to try and time the double delete entry is really annoying, can this just be turned off or make it so only pressing enter uses the autofill result.
