suggestion box is sometimes in the way
The intellisense box often obscures data in the grid results payne which requires that I hit esc to close suggestions and then retype or ctrl-space to bring it back up.
1) The main reason is that the box is usually much larger than it needs to be. If it would auto size as needed it would take up much less room.
2) an optional transparency setting would be much appreciated. Initially draw the box opaque but when the user stops typing, start fading it out a bit slowly because the user may want to see content below. The initial opacity would be configurable.
Transparency was added as an option in SQL Prompt 9.4.10.
Another suggestion relates to solving this issue:

In most IDE's the suggest box isnt displayed until you type the first character. I find it annoying that SQL Prompt recognizes space as a character to bring up the suggest box. I wish there were an option to configure how many characters you type before the suggest box appears (idealy atleast 1 character).
