I have questions about turn off parenthesis matching. Does anyone know how to turn off parenthesis matching?


When I type a (, it will automatically add ), becomes ().

It's pretty nice for editing plain text. But quite annoying while editing clojure files.


Set this in your User settings

"auto_match_enabled" : false

  • Can you make it a toggle switch? – laggingreflex Aug 11 '12 at 23:08

    You'd be better off adding that line to the User settings (Preferences > Settings - User) rather than global so that they're not overwritten by updates. – pelms Oct 3 '12 at 11:38

You can toggle this setting by adding a key binding to 'Preferences > Key Bindings - User'.
e.g. to make Ctrl+Shift+p toggle the setting, use:

    "keys": ["ctrl+shift+p"],
    "command": "toggle_setting",
        "setting": "auto_match_enabled"

It sounds like you need to change autoMatchEnabled to false under File Type Preferences to disable auto pairing. Read more about it: http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/file-type-preferences

  • Thanks Sam! it should be there. But I set "autoMatchEnabled":false @Global.sublime-settings, restart, still not working. – Juanito Fatas Feb 23 '12 at 2:33
