Is there a way to disable the automatic insertion of closing brackets in DW 2018? I appreciate the HTML and PHP code completion but the closing of brackets drives me crazy.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Ah, that one you have to squish in the brackets.json file...

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 2017 > 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,

(make sure the "b" in Brackets is capitalized)

3. Save and open DW and that "should" stop the auto closing for you.

I'm sorry, I meant characters like: { }, " ", ( )

As soon as I type the opening one, DW inserts the closing one.

I'm fine with the closing HTML tags.
