I'm using the version 7.5.8 and I noticed that it auto-closes the already closed tag if I type the > sign in between.

E.g., if inside the body tag I type ul>(attempting to use the Emmet's syntax ul>li) I'll get this:




How do I prevent this annoying behavior? Is there any way to do so other than turning off the auto-completion feature completely?

Thank you very much!


You can disable the auto insertion of html/xml closing tags by going into
Settings->Preferences->Auto-Completion and unchecking "html/xml close tag" in the "Auto-Insert" section.
