Version: 4.5 (using KDE 4.5.1)
When editing a payment in the ledger I cannot enter a new (not existing) payee, if there is already any existing payee with same first characters. Example: there exists an payee "Lebensmittel". I cannot enter "Leben". The autocompletion feature always choose "Lebensmittel", even if I close the popup result list.
Steps to Reproduce:
Enter a new (not existing) payee with the first characters of any existing payee.
KMM always selects the first existing payee, it's impossible to create a new one in the ledgers editor mode, when the first characters are the same as an existing payee
If I close the autocompletion window, kmm should accept the new payee name and should create a new one.
A quick workaround would be to add a few spaces so that the new name does not match an existing one. Those blanks (as of now) have to be removed manually from the payee's name in the payee view afterwards.
Enter the new payee and click the mouse in the next field you want to enter. If the dropdown is in the way, hit ESC. I just tried this and it offered to add the new payee. Maybe it can't be done with the keyboard alone, but with the mouse, it seems it is possible.
Since this bug is a result of implementing BUG 235618 I'm changing this into a wish with the following description.
It would be nice if the KMyMoney editable combo would allow adding items by changing
while correctly handling object creation.
And I forgot to add that until then the simple workaround posted by Jack is there to create a payee which is a substring of another payee.

I would like to petition for an upgrade from "wishlist" status. While this isn't critical-path functionality, it is highly annoying when entering a lot of information.

Only copy the complete text from the completion box to the edit widget if the completion box is visible.
