Cannot auto insert another parentheses couple if another parentheses are already opened after update
After updating npp ive been struggling while developing. whenever i try to open a new bracket inside an already opened couple, it only opens bracket and completes with the bracket of the first one.
shit english but here is a gif
Which programming language are you using and could you add your debug infomations regarding n++ version and installed plugins.
Notepad++ v7.3.2 (64-bit)
Build time : Feb 12 2017 - 23:17:55
Path : C:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
Admin mode : OFF
Local Conf mode : OFF
OS : Windows 10 (64-bit)
Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll
Afaik, normal/expected behavior.
@Claudia-Frank no it’s not. this didnt happen before.
Really, afaik it was long time ago when this has been changed.
Autocomplete works only if the chars follow in succession, one after another.
As soon as another non-autocomplete char is added it won’t autocomplete
if right to cursor another char already exists.
So you can press 5 times ( and it will autocomplete with 5 )
(as long as it is enabled of course)
but as soon as you press, for example a space, it won’t autocomplete for the next (.
Which version did you use where this was working previously?
However, it’s possible to achieve this behavior using a plugin : XBrackets.
I invite you to download it and try it out. In the settings of the plugin, you should see “Even if corresponding right brackets exists”. Check that too, and it should work the want you want it.
Hope I could help.
