[MonoDevelop] Random questions to adjust MD

Ok found reformater rules thanks, fantastic how detailed they are - I
was expecting it in the Preferences.

When I type "Ob" the completion list shows "Object" selected, but then
press Enter I don't get "Object" completed and a newline is inserted.

For the UI I understand this is GTK so the controls set will
definitely be foreign. Instead of Eclipse I would mention Netbeans or
Komodo Edit which look less foreign (and even somewhat nice) under Mac
and I feel it's a question of colors/icons tweaking (and native
scrollbars even if I'm not found of Mac's ones).

Anyway in general MD is looking definitely decent :)

Note: running regular MD 2.4
