Every time there's is a pop up menu. I select the first occurrence and press enter but nothing happens (the word is not completed with he selected occurrence). The only way is to press Tab until you reach the term for a second time.

Is there a way of selecting the first occurrence pressing Enter (or other Vim hotkey)?

My .vimrc:

nnoremap <F3> :TlistToggle<CR>

Are you using any other plugins? How do you bring up the popup menu? –  graywh Mar 2 '11 at 20:38

Sorry the behaviour still the same. –  janoChen Feb 5 '11 at 21:20
@janoChen Do you use Ctrl+N or down arrow for selecting the first menu item? –  ulidtko Feb 5 '11 at 21:24
if I press CTRL+N it 'goes back to original" then I ahve to press again to go to the second occurrence and again to select the first one. –  janoChen Feb 5 '11 at 21:29
