Tab in Visual Assist is used for accepting suggestion; Tab is also used in Copilot to accept Suggestion;

How do I change this hotkey for either Visual Assist OR copilot?
Scavenged the internet, couldn't find anything

Since I don't have a Github Copilot account, I cannot simply test this directly here, but has anyone tried setting:

VA Options -> Enhanced Listboxes -> Commit selection with - Tab = OFF
VA Options -> Enhanced Listboxes -> Commit selection with - Enter = ON

also does the setting FAN posted help?

using c++ with unreal engine
Using Github Copilot Completions Extension (External VS extension, not in-built)

as you can see in this image: https://imgur.com/a/bgEZXbJ

Visual Assist says "VA Snippet, Accept with <TAB> or <ENTER>"
and Copilot says, "Tab to Accept"

so, both are kind of competing for tab command,
couldn't figure out how to change tab command for either copilot or VA

I think what he means is that the tab key is used by both the IntelliCode autocomplition and the GitHub Copilot extension. (So it is not directly related to Visual Assist.) Anyway, the solution from this Github forum might help:
Tools > Options > IntelliCode > Advanced > Accept code suggestion on right arrow

Which programming language are you working in?

Are you talking about something that happens with the GitHub Copilot Chat extension installed and active, or something built into Visual Studio?
