I have a very simple suggestion I suppose for Visual Assist X,
how about being able to press the space bar to accept a suggestion?
Alot of Visual C++ as well as Visual Basic developers are used to that for Intellisense. Maybe make it an option just like for using Enter or Tab to accept corrections?

You could enable "Display suggestion lists and accept with -> Any character not valid in a symbol"

Since "Space" isn't a valid character in symbols, it would do what you want.
But this would also allow {[()]} etc. as trigger.

It could be made better by not adding the space character when the SpaceBar has been used to complete a suggestion. In some cases it is necessary to press {SpaceBar}{BackSpace} to correctly complete a suggestion.

We try mostly to follow IDE conventions on selecting from listboxes and suggestion lists. Selecting with space isn't one by default unless, as we understand, you are using VB. For VB users, we've added the "Any character..." option so our suggestion lists operate more like the member listboxes of that programming language.

For non-VB users, we recommend sticking with the more common the IDE conventions.
