Description:
In PHPStorm we have the option to type only the first letter of the word for auto complete.
For example to see user_setting_panel in auto complete suggestions you only type "usp". 

How to repeat:
See description.

Hi Ionel,

Thank you for the report.
Imho Auto-completion is enabled (and triggered) by default. Did you try it in SQL Editor? Please see https://dev.mysql.com/doc/workbench/en/wb-sql-editor-main-menu.html

Thanks,
Umesh

The autocomplete is active is working as expected, but i suggested that it can be improved with a new feature. Let say that we have two tables with similar names, user_setting_panel and user_setting_data instead of typing "user_setting_d" it will be nice to just type "usd" (first letter of each word) and in the autocomplete you will appear "user_setting_data".

Thank you for the feature request for the auto-completion based on acronyms or abbreviations!
