Can't figure out how to fix weird autocomplete issue


I use a fairly vanilla Atom install.

Every so often in my python code I need to set a debugger breakpoint, so I type:

import ipdb; ipdb.set_trace() # DEBUG

However, recently Atom started autocompleting the word ipdb in my files so that as soon as I type ip it helpfully suggests: import ipdb; ipdb.set_trace()

I’d like to change this text, so that it includes the # DEBUG at the end.

However, I can’t figure out where this is coming from, as it appears even when I have no other files open that have the text ipdb so it’s clearly some kind of user-dictionary. I checked snippets, but they’re empty other than the default ‘lorem’ provider.

Where is this user dictionary coming from and how can I edit it?


I believe the snippet come from language python

In the future, it would have been helpful to have more context, example: happens on python files. And title could have been more specific too. This is more a request how to customize X than an autocomplete issue one has to fix.
