I've been thinking that convenient auto-completion is my must-have feature of the text editors and word processors that I use. I wonder if anyone knows of a program or library that implements a system-wide rather than document-specific (or application-specific in the case of LibreOffice and others) auto-complete word list.

I don't understand the question. On OS X, just press [Opt-]Escape or [Shift-]F5 in all well-behaved applications. Isn't this what you want? – Daniel Beck Jun 19 '12 at 18:15

I assume you are referring to LibreOffice's auto-complete feature.

The closest I found is the english typing booster, which is a new feature in Fedora 17.

You need to compile it yourself though, if you want to use it with anything but F17.

That gives me a good place to start. Thanks for letting me know! – speedofmac Oct 1 '12 at 18:09
