I switched from PHPed to Aptana 3 because of the Zen Coding Addon which is not available for PHPed.

My Problem is as follows:

I'm coding HTML / CSS. When I type <div st the first suggestion is for <style type="text/css" media="screen"></style> (not good, never need this) and the second is the correct one to autocomplete my style tag.

I heard that this was changed in 3.0.4 - is it possible to define autosuggestions?

Another problem is when I create a <div> and after the autocomplete I want to go to the inside of the <div> by pressing enter but the curser just jumps behind that complete <div>.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

My solution would be "become a faster typist and switch to Vim". I suspect this will be closed as editor-specific support isn't really a "programming" question. – meagar Oct 27 '11 at 14:20
simply changing of the IDE serves the purpose, changing the entire standard for this is not recommended. it may make code a very unreadable one. – linuxeasy Oct 27 '11 at 14:23
when i type "<div st" - why should i get the proposal for "<style type="text"...." ? This is idiotic... – Frederic Feddema Oct 27 '11 at 14:27
@meager - this is however a question about configuring a programming tool which is on-topic here. – Kev Oct 29 '11 at 13:28
Can you provide some screenshots to demonstrate this issue? – Kev Oct 29 '11 at 13:28
