I have TeX-electric-math[1] set to replace $ with \( and \) for inline equations. In the documentation[2] it claims that repeatedly pressing $ while in the active math region, you can toggle between inline \(...\) and display \[...\] equations, but this seems to simply not work (I just get \($\)). Am I misunderstanding, or is there something I still need to configure for this to work?

Last paragraph under Dollar Signs -> TeX-electric-math


Select a region that isn't in math mode, and press $: the first time you'll wrap it with inline math delimiters (e.g. \(...\)or $...$), the second time it'll be replaced by display math delimiters (e.g. \[...\] or $$...$$). This how it's supposed to work.
