Typing Equals character (=) creates paired Equals character

  • Obsidian v 0.11.9
  • Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS

Typing = now produces == with your cursor in between the two.

Is this an intentional change? I realize that = is used for highlighting, but I type = for non-highlighting purposes more often than for… so this new behavior is undesirable.

The old way was better, where typing Equals only produced a paired character if you typed it while text was selected.


yes, it’s intentional. You can disable all autopairings in the settings.

Side note the autopair happens only if the previours character is space or new line.
Result= does not generate a pair.

From 0.11.11, $ ~ = % will only autopair on selected text.
