     7=== How do the completion popups work? === 
     8 
     9On a desktop IRC client you can usually press the Tab key to autocomplete a nickname when sending a message, which is really handy for saving you a whole lot of typing. Since the iPhone lacks a Tab key, and because there are also common commands and emoticons you might to use, Colloquy has chat completions.

     11As you type, you’ll see suggestions that match what you’ve typed so far. These suggestions will only appear once you've typed two characters, and unlike the iPhone's own autocorrection, will be ignored unless you tap to insert one.  
     12 
     13Tapping the Close (the gray "X") button will stop any more suggestions for that word, and if you're not a fan of the feature in general, you can disable it entirely in Colloquy's settings (Advanced Behavior, Chat Completions).

    715=== Can I continue to receive messages or otherwise run Colloquy in the background? === 
     
    1624While we figure most people will prefer to tap chat-completion suggestions to insert them, Colloquy also offers the option of inserting them using the keyboard. You can switch to Keyboard Selection in Colloquy's settings (Advanced Behavior, Chat Completions).

    18 With keyboard selection, instead of only being able to tap suggestions to insert them, you can also wait a second after a suggestion pops up, tap the Space key until the suggestion you want is highlighted, and finally tap the Enter key to insert it. The Space key will only select suggestions if you pause from typing for a second, otherwise just as with Tap Selection mode, continuing to type will be ignore suggestions. You will know you've waited long enough when the Send key changes to Enter.

    2028If you accidentally invoke suggestions with the space bar but don't want them, either tap the Close button (the gray "X") or the Space key until the Close button is highlighted and then tap Enter to dismiss them. You can also keep typing while in this state, and Colloquy will insert a space and the letter you pressed while dismissing the suggestions.
