Can't type "or Get ()" in calculation editor

In FMPA 15, I could type ".... or Get" (also "or Ge") and press return, and it would change it to ".... or Get ()" with the cursor in the brackets of the Get function. This was very handy because I could immediately start typing and it would show valid values for the Get function.

 

When I do this in FMPA 16, it replaces both the Or and the Get with GetNthRecord (). Get is no longer showing because it thinks that "or" is part of the function. In 16, if I press return after typing the text in the first screenshot, I get the following instead of "or Get ()":

This is really annoying.

 

(The workaround obviously is to type "Get ()" manually, but it's hard to remember this when my fingers are trained)
