Both of these are already under the "View" menu.

It makes no sense in having menu items for these from the main Lazarus
window. They are used in the editor *while* you type. Otherwise I type
partial text. Move my hand off the keyboard onto the mouse and select
the menu items. Then move my hand back onto the keyboard to continue
typing. A simple shortcut is all that is needed.

If you don't know the shortcut, use the Key Mappings screen and filter
the items by typing in a description.
"Environment > Options > Editor > Key Mappings".  By typing in
"comple" will give you all the items your require.  ;-)
