Hello, all,

 

I'm used to working in Dw CS6, but am being forced to use Dw CC 2018 at work.  Of the long list of annoyances I have with Dw CC 2018 is how whenever I type " or ', it automatically adds a closing " or '.

 

How do I prevent this from happening?

 

V/r,

I never could get it to straighten up and fly right, but I did find this before I gave up on it...

1. On a PC, go to C: > Users > your user name > AppData (make sure hidden files are turned on if you don't see this folder) > Roaming > Adobe > Dreamweaver CC 2018 > your language > Configuration > Brackets > brackets.json

1a. On a Mac, this "should" be... (I don't have a Mac)
a. do a search for ~/Library/Application Support (make sure the ~ is there)
b. hit Go
c. next, go to Adobe > Dreamweaver CC 20

  1. Go to Edit > Preferences > Code Hints.
  2. Auto completion:  Disable Auto Insert Quotes.

While you're at it, you might want to explore all the other Preferences in DW CC.

That option wasn't added to DW until CC2019.

Sorry about that.  I guess I skipped 2018 due to problems I had with it.   For me anyway, 2019 was more stable.

Hi, Nancy,

 

I disabled code hints and description tooltips, and it's still doing it.

b. hit Go
c. next, go to Adobe > Dreamweaver CC 2018 > your language > Configuration > Brackets > brackets.json


2. (make a back-up first so you can go back if you goof) Open the file in something other than DW


3. If the option for closeBrackets doesn't already exist, add a comma to the last item on the list, then add the following to the end of the file, before the closing } ...


"closeBrackets": false,

 

You may also need a line for...

"autoCloseBraces":false,

and

"autoCloseQuotes":false,


3. Save and open DW
