The completion table is populated by all the keys in the bibliography.
It is not limited to in-document keys.

Oh good.

Let me revise then.

Rather than just completing the key, how about something like:

("title author date" . "key")

E.g. look up against the data, and return the key.

It's hard to remember keys if you have hundreds or thousands.

In bibtex-actions, I added some hidden data to the search string, including the key, to ensure uniqueness.

I am a bit lost. Would you mind explaining what should be

For example, plug in a different completion table or function?

I'd like to add support for JSON bibliography in Org Cite Basic first.

Makes sense.


I'm also wondering if some integration with pcomplete (M-/) is
warranted. It may not be with an efficient enough insertion function.
Maybe this can wait.

Otherwise, I'm mostly done.
