Disable automatic parens completion.
Notepad++ has this annoying built in feature where it autocompletes quotes brackets angle brackets braces parens parentheses etc.
" and it throws in another
" right away! Stop it already!
Settings -> Preferences -> Auto-Completion
2nd grouping called "Auto-Insert", check/un-check the appropriate auto completion/inserts.
...area, change auto-completion on each input to be from 5th character, not from 1st character
Note there seems to be a bug in version 7.5.7 where I can't set which character it is from.
So I could only turn off auto complete.
Instead though, I've edited the
config.xml file stored here:
cd $env:APPDATA cd Notepad++ FindText auto-compl Notepad.exe config.xml
<GUIConfig name="auto-completion" autoCAction="3" triggerFromNbChar="1" autoCIgnoreNumbers="no" funcParams="yes" />
<GUIConfig name="auto-completion" autoCAction="3" triggerFromNbChar="5" autoCIgnoreNumbers="no" funcParams="yes" />
