      You can also just continue typing and that character will be inserted
      or used as normal. Typing space is an example of that. Typing C-y
      (which I didn't know about) is useful if you don't know what you want
      to type next.

      This can be disconcerting if you're used to completion behavior in
      other editors. For example, typing Esc doesn't cancel the completion -
      it accepts it and takes you out of insert mode. Hitting CR accepts the
      completion , but also inserts a CR, etc.
