Similar to bug #56207, although of lesser importance, it would be nice if the autocomplete list in the GUI Editor included available variables defined in the current workspace.

Matlab does this, and the Octave interpreter in the Command Window also does this.

As an example, in the Command Window do

mydata = pi;
