FS#224 - Keyword Completion does not work for several names

Keyword Completion does not work for several names.
I miss it for animation related names like frame_number or final_frame.

Typing “fram{TAB}” just inserts a TAB character after “fram” instead of completing it to frame_number.

Independently of that bug, typing {TAB} repeatedly does not cycle through possible names:
“fr{TAB}” gives “frequency” and “fresnel” and that’s all.

In version 3.6 it worked well.

My system is Windows 7 64bit and PovRay is 3.7.0.RC3.msvc9.win64

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  

Closing this issue out as mechanism to add arbitrary keywords in place. If particular keywords are today missing, please open new, specific to keyword completion, issue(s) on github.

This is not a bug. In POV-Ray 3.7 several keywords have been turned into defines. As such, they no longer appear as keywords.

Thanks for your answer, Thorsten.
Do you know about the reason for this change? I think it's not only "just for fun".

But now I know that I have to accept that behaviour, which is by design.
And that this is another task for AutoHotkey to suppert my laziness :)

This should be mitigated in RC7, which allows arbitrary keywords to be added to the editor's syntax and keyword expansion.
