Feature un-request- back-tick quote balancing

I think this was added in 1.0.157 under “Added backticks to auto-wrapping quotes”.

I place a lot of source code in my notes, and Joplin is helpfully adding what it thinks is the right number of balanced quotes. Needless to say, this causes a lot of backspacing, etc. as I change two or four backticks back to three…


I think this has just been fixed today and the updated behaviour should be available in the next release (or perhaps the one after).

@CalebJohn Could you add an option to disable generating all closing quotes/braces/etc? This is so irritating.

Ya I’ll look into it, I’m not a fan of auto matching braces myself.

If it’s not possible to make it work, maybe we should remove the feature then. I prefer not to add an option for this.

A lot of editors do that, so I vote to keep it.

I find it very useful and I vote also to keep it.
For others, did you consider, for these kind of documents, type it in another editor and then copy/paste it into Joplin editor ?

I think it makes sense to have a toggle for this one given that there is no right answer. Everybody seems to have a personal preference and it doesn’t make sense for everybody to have to use the same default.

Ok that makes sense, it’s true that other editors generally have this option too, so if you can add it, we can merge.

What it the status on that? Using:
Joplin 1.0.233 (prod, win32)

Client ID: 1333e5503b574bababa5c80c88fcc160
Sync Version: 1
Profile Version: 32
Keychain Supported: No

Revision: e63eee89 (master)

back tick quote doesn’t balanced even if the option “Auto-pair braces, parenthesis, quotations, etc.” is checked.

My use case: select some text, press back tick quote.
Expected: back tick quote surounds my text
Actual: back tick replace my text

square bracket, parenthesis and quotation mark " works

EDIT: it works using CodeMirror
