NextPrevUpTopContentsIndex Interaction while the in-place window is displayed

Any operation that affects the text between the start of the relevant text (this is the start in a text-input-pane , and the highlighted area in an editor-pane ) and the current cursor causes the in-place window to recompute the possible completions and display the new list. These operations include not only actual changes to the text, but also cursor movement.

In an editor-pane , if the insertion point moves out of the highlighted area then the in-place window goes away.

If the input pane loses the focus, the in-place window goes away, except on Motif.
