Autocompletion can be done from an API file which contains
all Python functions. While this file depends on your
personal configuration of Python, you may use the
"" script to scan all your modules. You'll
then have to load the file generated into eric via the
configuration dialog.
Autocompletion can also be done from the current words
already written in your document. 
When checking the "Autocompletion" checkbox, you'll have to
select a radio button to choose your default autocompletion
mode. That means that autocompletion is automatically
activated when the threshold (number of characters)
indicated below is reached.
After choosing a default mode (or not!), two shortcuts
(Ctrl+Space and Ctrl+Shift+Space) are also available to
start autocompletion from API or Document whatever selected
in the preferences.

Concerning the "About Eric" bug, I had the same before, but
it was due to my PyQT and SIP versions which were not recent
It works for me with:
- PyQt-x11-gpl-3.13
- sip-4.1.1
- QScintilla 1.4
- eric 3.5

Hope it helps,

You can either user one ore more API file which contains

Somebody suggested that I look at wings.  I download their
beta and it's sort 
of running.  But it does have the intellisense that I was
looking for - at 
least when I type 'wx.' a list pops up of available
functions.  Is this how 
the API is suppose to work?  I ask because I really don't
know how to setup 
the API.  There is a radio button selection but when I set
it to API I get a 
select box with a list of items I do not know.  
Thanks for your help!  BTW the debugger works well!
