As the title indicates, I was using the TAB completion sequences of certain unicode inputs (\cdot, \rho, \alpha, \beta…) when I noticed that the Intellisense stopped working entirely. Then the TAB completion for the unicode stopped showing suggestions. Further, typing “\pi” and hitting tab does not print the symbol but prints verbatim “\pi\t” (where ‘\t’ is the tab character). The tab completion worked fine in a standalone Julia and this only occurred in VS Code. That was the behavior I noticed. Then as I continued to attempt to get the Intellisense and unicode tab completion to work in VS Code, I noticed that somehow Julia began an infinite loop and completely consumed all the RAM on my machine (which is a lot).
So this problem started last night and I researched other threads on here and saw that this is a recurring problem but none of the fixes really worked for me. I have tried completely uninstalling Julia 1.4.2 and VSCode 1.46.1 and reinstalling it with no other packages (I did run update from the Pkg prompt though), and the problem re-surfaced. I am at the point where I have to monitor Julia in Task Manager, and it happens with the unicode TAB completion without fail each time.
Is there a legit fix to this? Does this problem occur with Atom/Juno?
Just a heads up, I am very new Julia so please offer suggestions with this in mind. Thank you in advance for your help.
