Single most frustrating thing of any code editor:

When you type an “ and it puts a closing one in that you don’t want. You then delete the one you put in to keep the extra and both vanish.

@jameschip I frequently get a "here we go" feel before typing { in my text editor

@jameschip Every single time. I keep wondering why anyone ever thought it was a needed feature.

@ice i know right. It’s not that difficult to just type the closing “ when writing a string.

Actually I bet you do every time already and the editor picks it up and skips you over the one it put in so that you don’t double up.

The absolute definition of a pointless function.
