Reviews Add new review

Copilot has started giving me errors and I have uninstalled Copilot4Eclipse, but when I reinstall, it tells me "There are no licenses to review. Either the software does not specify a license, or the license has already been reviewed and approved."
I have a Copilot license, and I use it with VisualCode, but for a few days now, I can no longer use it in Eclipse...

Hello everyone,

is it known if Copilot Chat in plugin will be supported and if so, when will the version with the caht be available? 

Thank you.

Hi Andreas,

Please note that CTRL+RIGHT is still available in all Eclipse editors.

Copilot4Eclipse adds additional context to the CTRL+RIGHT keyboard shortcut such that when the cursor is within an inline code suggestion, the keyboard shortcut will incrementally accept the completion text word by word. When outside of an inline completion context, CTRL+RIGHT performs the default Next Word action. We chose to enhance the CTRL+RIGHT keyboard shortcut this way to provide a consistent experience with how Copilot works in IntelliJ and Visual Studio Code.

Please note that all Copilot4Eclipse keyboard shortcuts including CTRL+RIGHT can be customized to your own preference or disabled if you choose. More information is available on the support thread you created here.

If you experience issue or have a concern please contact us directly on our community forum which allows us to provide more detailed and immediate assistance.
