Hi,

I notice that Eclipse has an auto-completion-mechanism wish automatically adds a closing bracket when I write an opening bracket, same for quotes. This may be helpful at some times, but tends to be very annoying, because if not, I have to delete those auto-completions manually.
Example:

var a = test;

I want to add quotes and end up with this:

var a = ""test""

Please, can anyone tell me how to turn this off? And, what is the meaning of this mechanism? I find it hard to believe that anyone seriously wants such a behaviour.

Thx,

Momo

I think that's either https://github.com/eclipse/wildwebdeveloper/issues/655 or https://github.com/eclipse/wildwebdeveloper/issues/544. Preferences for it aren't set using the same conventions as most other editors in Eclipse.

The solution offered in the first link does not work, the second link does not offer an solution. Seems that almost nobody cares about this problem... but thanks anyway!
