I use QGIS 2.14.3-Essen. The auto-complete function works without any problems in the python console, but it does not work in the QGIS python editor. I also tried it on another PC running QGIS 2.14.3 - essen-based, both of which worked well. I even tried to re-install QGIS, but still was not able to solve this problem.

How do I solve this problem?

When you load the Python Console, there should be an Options button:

Python console options

Click this and look for the Editor section. Make sure the Autocompletion setting is checked and has a threshold >0:


  • Thanks for your answer. I confirmed my setting, Autocompletion threshold is "2".

  • @TJ - I am currently installing QGIS 2.14.3 (I had 2.14.1) so will test this and see if it still works :)
