How do I get rid of the suggestions pop up in Xcode when I type everytime.

When I type in Xcode and it automatically hows many things for me and I don't want those to pop up. Can someone help me with it?

You will learn to LOVE those "pop ups", or code completion suggestions. That is the compiler predicting what you are trying to write. This will also prevent errors in code by making it difficult to misspell properties, etc. Any IDE without a feature like this is not a very good IDE. Same can be said for text editors in my opinion.

With that said, you can disable many of the code completion settings in preferences under text editing. Again, I highly suggest you don't disable it.

Lastly, if this is not what you're referring to as "pop ups" then I'm going to need more to go on.

Thank you! The reason I wanted to change that was when I assigned a variable number, and next line, I typed number, and it pops up other options rather than to use the string. Now I will keep it.
