Hi Marko,   
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.   
Query: ”Is there a way to catch this click and detect clicked item?”   
Yes, you can detect the clicked item by simply binding the jQuery click event to the li element. First. bind the click event for the li element’s class and then get the clicked element using the target argument of the click event.    
                alert("Item : "+ e.target.innerText);   
Sample for your reference: http://jsplayground.syncfusion.com/4hmsw5z5   

Also in our Autocomplete, the suggestion value is not repeated in the multiselect visualmode, if it is already selected.   

Please check the shared sample and information, and if the shared details still doesn’t meet your requirement, let us know.
