One of my favourite new features in Fobar is the Autocomplete/autofill. It's one of the best ways for maintaining consistency in artist/track/album names and such, which later enables a better management/discovery of duplicate tracks, cover versions and the such.
Thing is it qould only work for the 1st value on a multi-value field. Once a ';' character is introduced, rather starting a new autocomplete 'session', it's just disabled.
Is there anything I'm missing?

This bothers me also; just in case the realisation takes long or will not happen due to limitations of the GUI objects I have found the following "work-around": Using the Quick Tag Panel. It needs columns_ui to be present, but not necessarily used as the panel runs in an own window otherwise.

It support "auto-filling" too as it can scan your library for all possible values of a tag an then display them as a list like shown here:

This works also for bigger lists (still to be reduced...):
