Can't get alias working

I'm a new user, I'm trying to understand the alias functionality.

In Options > Auto Insert > Aliases I have added 'myTable' as an alias, with 'my' as the alias.

When I type 'select * from myTable', is the alias supposed to be added automatically?

If so, mine is not working. If not, how do I use the alias functionality?

    Hi Steve,

    If you manually enter myTable rather than selecting it from the suggestion popup, then you will have to make sure that the cursor is at the end of myTable without any space and then press Ctrl+space keys. this will then fill in "my" for you.
