# How to disable auto-complete braces in TEXStudio?

I want to disable auto-complete for braces in TeXstudio. In its simplest form, when I type { I do not want it to automatically add a }. When it does this, many times I end up deleting the brace, which is a hassle. Also, when I hit Ctrl+I to get into italics mode I don't want it to auto-complete the ending brace either. I have gone to Options -> Configure TeXstudio... -> Completion -> Show Advanced Options and disabled everything. But it still auto-completes them.

In case it matters the version I have is TeXstudio 2.8.4.

• haha it's fine. Part of my problem is all the help out there is for different editors/versions. I have edited the post to include the version in case it comes up again. – Curtis Nov 10 '14 at 18:01

• Question on Ctrl+I: Go to Macros -> User Macros and create a new normal macro with content \textit{. Then go to Options -> Configure -> Shortcuts and assign Ctrl+I to your new macro. – Tim Hoffmann Nov 11 '14 at 22:14
