atom text editor html element auto complete

Hello I'm having trouble getting atom to auto complete html elements, for example in the sublime text editor whenever you type an element such as h1 the text editor automatically completes the entire element when you select it from a list, but with atom, it seems that it doesn't do that, can someone help?

Hi Erik, on Atom in an HTML file, the autocomplete function becomes available when you start typing the tag name without the beginning bracket (<). You should see the name of the tag with the following characters: ->| in green. Just hit Enter when the name of the tag you want is highlighted.

With CSS, you also need to begin typing the name of the element you want to select, but the characters will be the following: <> in red.
