How to turn off brackets/quotes auto-completion in Visual Studio
As it states in the title: how to I turn off brackets/quotes/curly braces autocompletion in MSVS? I'm interested in C# and XAML mostly but other text editors would be nice too.
EDIT: Currently I'm using MSVS 11 with these extensions:
- Concurrency Visualizer
- PreEmptive Analytics Aggregator Visualizer
- MSVS PerfWatson
- Web Tooling Extensions
Most of them must have been pre-installed with msvs installation, since I cannot recall installing them by myself ;)
EDIT2: I'm using msvs in this version: Version 11.0.50323.1 QRELB
EDIT3: I found out the problem does not occur in currently available msvs11.
If anyone is having this issue with VS 2013, there is a setting for this now. I just reset my VS settings and it started to complete my braces again. For me, it wasn't productivity power tools. You can turn it on/off here:
If anyone is by chance using Resharper you may also want to adjust the settings in
(Resharper Menu, Options) - Environment -> Editor -> Editor Behavior
(Resharper Menu, Options) - Environment -> Intellisense -> Completion Behavior
according to your personal preferences, in addition to the built-in Visual Studio settings mentioned by others.
For Visual Studio 2017:
Tools > Options > Text Editor > C# > General > Automatic brace completion
Tools > Options > Text Editor > All Languages > General > Automatic brace completion
I realize you did not mention the Productivity Power Tools, however it is very easy to turn off with this. This package can be downloaded via nuget I believe.
Once downloaded go to Tools - Options - Productivity Power Tools - then on the right you will see auto Brace Completion. Turn off!
To turn off the double-quote auto complete for XAML in Visual Studio 2015, it is:
Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> XAML -> Miscellaneous -> Attribute quotes
For those using the 2017 mac version of visual studio: Preferences > Text Editor > Behavior > Automatic Behaviors > "Insert matching brace"
