On/Off auto-type in preferences

Post by sphere » Sat Apr 21, 2018 5:31 pm

Hi,

how to turn off the auto-type function?

It's especially the quote which is starting to irritate me as it's slows down the typing.
When typing the quote then after that i have to escape it by using the arrows or the end key.
And after that you can go ahead typing or hitting the Return key.

Is it possible to get an On/Off switch in the preferences or exclude the quote in auto-typing?
or am i overlooking a setting?

Thanks a lot!

The items your looking for are under "Edit -> Options" in the script editor menus.

I usually turn the first 3 off immediately if they are on, highlighting is still kind of dodgy/slow, but not nearly as bad.

Thanks Bogs!

I have overlooked that.
Did not see it owns options separate from the preferences.

That's a relieve :P

My pleasure to pass it along, I think it was a post from Craig that Richard answered that pointed it out to me :D

I love group help, or, "correcting annoyances for recovering typing addicts" :twisted:
