Auto complete IPTC

LR used to auto complete from previously entered text in the IPTC fields, like title or caption. Now it doesn't do this anymore. I have searched everywhere in the preferences, but I cannot find it, nor can I remember to have deactivated it. Is this feature removed in a LR update, or is it still there?

Could you please let us know your operating system and Lightroom Classic version?
Please see if you have cleared the "Offer Suggestion From Recently Entered Values" check box from Catalog Settings > Metadata. 

Thanks,
Sunil

There it was! I have been looking everywhere, but not in the Catalog Settings. Thank you very much!

I use this feature a lot when captioning but am continually frustrated that it only remembers the last 11 values. It would be a welcome and easy win if Lightroom engineers could increase this number or even make it user configurable. Any chance?
