Executing the code below yields a dropdown menu of possible words as you type them in a text cell.

SetOptions[$FrontEndSession, NotebookEventActions -> {
   "KeyDown" :> {FrontEndTokenExecute["CompleteSelection"]},
   {"KeyDown", "\t"} :> {(*Do Nothing*)}
   , PassEventsDown -> True}]

My problem is the second event. I don't want the tab key event to be passed down. However, I need all other keydown events to be passed down. Is this possible?
