I work all day, every day in Qlik Sense as my company is a Qlik Sense partner. Generally we love the product, however the intellisense syntax help popup is phenomenally annoying. I can appreciate if you are new to Qlik Sense that this may be useful when writing a new function. However, the majority of functions I use, I use constantly, so have no need for syntax help. If I need a new funtion then the Community or the excellent 1.1 Script and Function guide are what I use.
I spend most of my day with the annoying yellow popup covering my lines of code:
Is there any way to turn this off? We have some people in our group who are capable of editing the Qlik Sense source code if we can be directed to the right location.
Press escape one too many times and the fx window disappears and you lose all your work. Sometimes I have 10-15 variants of a formula where I am looking for just the right touch. Resorted to copy/paste to text editor often and consistently.
Would be nice if you could.... A) toggle intellisense in the fx window B) get prompt if about to leave window dirty C) move around/resize the fx window
Hi Jim - et al - I just opened a new case in our internal ideation system. I would love to see some improvements in this area - it gets particularity annoying when I am trying to review my expression only to have the formula suggestion or intellisense overlapp my text.
I can't believe how long this thread has been running with no real improvements (except more intellisense being added).
My biggest bugbear now is that I find myself hitting Escape after every keyword, which I can cope with, but... this means that every-time I have to go back and edit QlikView load script I exit the load script editor after every line changed.
Just adding a bit of delay before the intellisense kicks in would help.
Fixing capitalisation of keywords that are not case sensitive is also irritating. I'm forever using Ctrl-Z to change Load back to LOAD before continuing. I like my ETL keywords in caps and I don't see why a machine should try to stop that.
If anyone knows of a hack to sort these things please share.
Would it be possible to put a switch in the syntax prompt to bring up the reserved words in CAPITALS. I (and clearly Steve Dark and I guess many others) spend ages turning them back from lower case to capitals. You may say this does not make any difference but us dinosaurs find it hard to change the habits and likes of a lifetime! What chance???
Yes, it is amazing - 2 years and no change, not even a simple mitigation of moving it out of the way or delaying it. I guess Qlik are like all the others where they don't care about the base users and only work on the latest fashion.
It is even more incredible when you know they have solutions in QV but won't port them!
Will this ever be fixed?? This is one of the most frustrating part of working with Qlik. Honestly when you are working on some complicated logic it is beyond frustrating that you have to fight with this when it would be so easy to fix.
