Message-ID: <CAJcAo8sCEjpq+XbA8DqDX+U2UG_Fkm0v0hiURZtuzxoX_RnTKQ@mail.gmail.com> (raw)
by default hippie-expand cycles. to cycle backward you can undo. idk
if it or dabbrev has a menu.
idk if this is useful but there is at least one menu package and many
completion packages at seemingly varying levels of interoperability.
some things have menus built in. there is some degree of modularity
in some packages, especially a set of minibuffer completion packages,
which is not waht you are looking for. i am confused by the many
options. so what i would start with is as an ignoramus [that's me] is
trying to find an overview of what's out there, dabbrev settings or a
hook for a menu, he settings, whether anything with a menu incluing a
menu package is intended to fit modularly into dabbrev, whether
dabbrev or he fit into some framework [company?] that has or can use a
menu. possibly you already tried those things but in cas nobod
