Disabling Type-Ahead

Hi im using Act!2009 and type-ahead is in some cases a really usefull function.. But the users seem to have trouble spelling the names of companies.... Unfortunately this now means that the Type-ahead function is now suggesting all sorts of weird things!

I realise I could just delete the type ahead history, however what I would really like to do is disable type-ahead on certain fields.
After reading  a KB article it looked simple enough. 4th picture down just uncheck the tickbox saying "Enable Type-Ahead"

This is ok when creating a list box, but that window doesnt appear when using a standard field (non list box)

Any chance of help in disabling type ahead?
(There is probably a reallllly simple answer to this!)


Thanks Matt

There isn't any option for that. You could make a feature request for a future version.
