How to disable automatic code completion for things like ( ), [ ], " "

I have disabled the Auto Pop-Up Code completion option under the Options menu.  However, when typing (, [ & " still automatically types the enclosing set.  How can I disable that behavior?

This is a new feature of version 12.30 (personally, I like it).  However, it is not considered "code completion".  


If you want the option to turn it off, there are feature requests already for that.  Go to and vote it up to see about having SmartBear folks make the change.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.
