"Tab" key to bring up pop-up search bar with candidate nodes

In Houdini and Nuke, you hit "Tab" to bring out a pop-up search bar where keeps showing suggestions as user type the name, enter to confirm the first node in the candidate list, placed at the current position of the cursor. This would be very convenient if we have the same feature in Octane.

Thank you!

You can already do this by pressing the space bar in the node graph editor, if you prefer other key or combinations of keys, commands can be remapped using the shortcut preferences editor although the tab key has a different role in the Octane interface.

Probably asking C4D. It's on todo list, but interface capability is limited. Hard to implement a gui like that.
