In Writer I use Word Completion. Proposals for Word Completion are shown after typing 3 characters. Unfortunately there is no option to adjust this. In my opinion it is too soon, word proposals are shown far too much. I would adjust this, so that proposals for word completion are shown after typing 5 characters (for example).
Well, could somebody add this option? Thank You.

1. Options Auto Correction
2. Word Completion

You can change it from Tools - AutoCorrect - AutoCorrect Options - Word Completion.

Hi Xisco Faulí,
thank You for your answer. But unfortunalety your answer is not correct.
As I said, I want to adjust the number of characters, before a word completion proposal is shown in the text file while writing. Currently there is (really) no option to adjust this.
1. Open Writer.
2. Acivate AutoCompletion, check Collect Words.
3. Type the word »exepletiveword« in the text file. Enter.
-> Now LibO Writer has automatically saved the word »exepletiveword« as an entry in the Auto Completion word list.)
4. Type »exe«.
-> Now LibO Write shows the proposal »exepletiveword«. Fine, Auto Completion works.
But - and that is my point - Writer always shows proposals after typing 3 characters (in this case »exe«). I want to change this, so that Writer shows a proposal after typing 6 characters for example, in this case it would be »exeple«.
That would be a nice enhancement for the tool Auto Completion. Of course it is not a bug (see category »Importance«).
Valid enhancement request, so status set to NEW.
That said I disagree with this request, I think it is useless. Word completion is useful if you have to type as few as possible characters before a completion proposal is shown. If you receive too many completion proposals, you should disable word completion.
Best regards. JBF
