Turn Off Automatic Parentheses
modusponens (0)

How might one turn off the feature whereby the repl.it editor automatically adds a right parenthesis whenever the left parenthesis key is pressed?

how do you go to the end of the line instead of typing in ],),} at the end of it anyway? If there was a key I could press instead of typing it anyway even though it is autofilled that would be great.

I would also like to request this, I am used to typing exactly what I want. I spend more time correcting bugs introduced by the editor trying to be helpful by adding in extra brackets, quotes etc. than actually writing code. Please give us a way to switch this off!

I don't think there's a way to turn it off, but hopefully we can get more options for the editor!
Also why would you turn off automatic parentheses? Just curious.

I don't think you can.
