Do you all know about the Assets.car requirement in iOS 11? Instead of including individual icons (which you have to do to support older iOS), you now include an Assets.car file, that has all of the icon sizes. It would be an included file. It is possible to make the file using Xcode, but I

I think it’s a convention issue. Normally autocomplete is triggered with the tab key. You can right arrow down the list and then press tab, and it will do the line you were on. You could argue that enter/return should work as well, but then you don’t have a way to indicate that you don’t want
