For instance, try; \begin{ite[tab] but you get nothing.

How can you have tab completion for LaTeX in TextMate?

1 Answer 1


TextMate generally uses esc for completion, though certain triggers can be specified in the Bundle for tab 'completion', you can see what the triggers are by going to the Bundles menu > Bundle Editor > Show Bundle Editor.

  • I would like to get a review why they rejected TAB as an autocompletion key, but selected instead ESC. Probably, it is better to use in different environments. May 26, 2015 at 9:03

    It looks like the "tab triggers" could be quite a powerful feature (TexMate manual for Tab Triggers), but perhaps the Bundle authors do not make the same commitment as was originally intended.
