Autoclosing of braces does not work if there is a character after it

Steps to reproduce

  1. Type any letter or set of letters
  2. Move typing cursor behind it
  3. Type any of these braces { [ (
  4. Cry (optional)

Expected result

I expect it to auto close the brace, regardless of there is an extra character or not

Actual result

It wasn’t auto closed

Additional information

This is not true for if there is a space after it.

This is probobly a ‘feature’, however, it definetly seems like a bug. If anything, there should be an option to enable or disable this behavior.

This type of behaiour should also definetly be disabled in math blocks, and possibly code blocks.

I don’t consider this a bug and I am skeptical most users will find such behavior useful.

The idea behind not autoclosing the bracket is because if you are inserting the bracket right before a character it’s likely that you forgot to open the bracket there before.

VScode behaves the same way.
