Tagging auto complete

Idea

Hopefully this gets to the right eyes, wish I could file a Jira ticket directly. This is a small annoyance with tagging but makes it a huge hassle to use for me. 

Something that happened to me today - note that the tags I am mentioning are case sensitive

I already at the tag 'API' used somewhere. 

Now I want to tag something with 'apply'

I type 'a' - now auto complete changes this to 'A' since API shows up at the top of the list. 

then I type 'p' and now have 'Ap' - now auto complete changes it to 'AP' since API shows up at the top of the list. 

The only way to get the tag I want is to do something like this: 

Type 'a' - auto complete changes to 'A' as mentioned before 

Type another 'a' - now I have 'Aa' - autocomplete doesn't change this because I don't have any similar tags. 

Type out the rest of the tag - 'Aapply' 

Go back and delete the first 'A'

 

 

Two recommendations I have - 

1. For tag autocomplete - key off of the case also. 'a' is not the same as 'A' and should not be treated as such. If I have tags starting with both 'a' and 'A' why would you show me the ones that start with 'A' first when I type 'a'

2. If the user types 'aa' as in my example above, and this doesn't match any tags - CHANGE THE CASE BACK TO WHAT THE USER TYPED - this one is super annoying. I type what I want but you change the text for me like you know what I want to type. There is no way around this and it is frustrating. Even better is don't change the case at all until the user explicitly chooses a tag from auto-complete.

The tags are case insensitive     a is the same as A
api is the same as API
There was no reason for you to type Aa; just continue typing "Apply" - its the same tag as "apply"
