When I start to enter an existing tag in the tags field, the spacebar works ok to accept the suggestion. However, in the search field, the spacebar doesn't do the accept and I need to use a mouse click. Is this expected? I couldn't find a mention in the help.
Hi Gunars, thanks for checking out the beta.
About the issue: this is quite old. The short story is, this is deliberate, because it was problematic: if part of the entered search term matched any of the tags, pressing space accepted the tag suggestion even when it was not wanted.
Example: there exists a tag "blogging". You want to search for "blog productivity", but as soon as you type "g" + space, 'blogging" gets inserted automatically.However you can enable accepting on spacebar for search box with the option "tagsedit.autocomplete.searchbox.acceptonspace".
Please see the old discussions here

No. But to find a an agreement, how about the following suggestion: Always select the first item. In the search-box the space bar does *not* accept the tag, only ENTER does. In the notes editor, in the tags-field space is supported to accept the tag.

Still imperfect since it will turn the "Accept suggestions on spacebar" option to a blatant lie - it won't work everywhere.
But I guess this is the case where pragmatism must be preferred over logical purity, so I say "aye") Let's do it this way.
And to be on the safest side, there will be an option in the settings file to enable accepting on spacebar even in the search box.
