Auto Insert close tag

When I type <p> and it automatically inserts </p> .... I find that strangely annoying...

Probably because that is only helpful if you write in a linear manner, from beginning to end... and I rarely do that.

I spend more time editing any file than I do writing it the first time.

So -- to turn off that behavior:

go to:

Tools | Options | Text Editor | HTML | Formatting


"Automatic formatting options"

"Auto Insert close tag" ← uncheck that!!
