How to disable auto insertion of matching quotation marks?


#1

I find myself usually having to delete the automatically inserted ‘matching quotation mark’ – is there a way to disable auto-insertion of quotes (but not of other more useful automatic end-bracket insertion behaviours – auto insertion of } after typing { tends to be useful)


#2

I think it’s not possible actually, it’s the bracket-matcher package that provides this feature, but it provides a setting only for smart quotes.

Thanks for the info … This is driving me crazy, might have to learn how to hack on atom and fix this …


#4

One solution would be to follow the same pattern that is used for smart quotes, and adding a setting to toggle the completion of regular quotes. This looks like a good way to start hacking Atom :smile:
