Feature Request: () and "" should close paren or quote if one is open

It would be great if the () button could analyze the line I am on, and if there is already a opening paren then it would insert only the closing paren. Likewise for the “” button.

This way if I have manually hit “(” I have a smart way of closing it, alternately if I am correcting a line and delete the closing paren (because it was easier to do that than carefully place the cursor), then it is trivial to close it.

+1 for this feature from me :slight_smile:

That’s a good one. I’ll look into it. Could you add it to the issue tracker too?

@Simeon. I do have to confess that up until this moment I wasn’t aware there was a public issue tracker :wink: Issue posted!

No need to point me to it, I just now went to look for it in the FAQ.
