Simple Fix for something that's become an inside joke. ReadRegistryString(Key,...

Ok Alteryx, we totally love your product.  And I've got a super quick fix for you.  Why on earth would you Autocomplete the ubiquitous tick mark as "ReadRegistryString(Key, ValueName, DefaultValue='')"

I find myself in this situation constantly where, 'dummy' suddenly becomes 'dummyReadRegistryString('HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SRC\Alteryx\4.1', 'InstallDir')' the moment I strike the enter key.  

Pls help, I don't ask for much.

I get so fired up every time this happens (which is at least 10 times a day).

Absolutely. Also a great motivation to everyone who was bugging this for a while now: post an idea next time 😄

Yes! I am constantly having to hit Ctrl+Z to back out of the autocomplete for this. Also can the fields be at the top of the list instead of the formulas when I type a bracket first? It normally brings the fields for the first character then it switches to formulas at the top as you type more characters.
