Wrap selections in brackets does not work


Maybe this is a duplicate, but I can’t seem to find an answer for this. Recently I switched computers and in my new install of atom I seem to have lost a functionality that I really like.

Before if I had selected a word and I typed a " and clicked space, the whole selection would be wrapped in quotes. I tried toggling on and of the options Wrap selections in brackets does not work in the bracket-matcher package to no avail. If you have a fix for this, could you share it :slight_smile:


It’s definitely still a feature, and I’m not sure why it isn’t working for you. What happens instead when you try it?

You should try opening Atom from the command line with atom --safe and see if it works there (safe mode will disable all of your packages).
