I'm a RubyMine user. I find that when I'm using WebStorm I miss RM's paren surrounding behavior. Example:
1. select text
2. type (
Webstorm: result: text is replaced with (
RubyMine: result: text is surrounded with ()
Same sort of thing happens with " and '. Is there a way to turn this on in WebStorm? I'm using Coffeescript if that's relevant.
Please review your "Settings | Editor | Smart Keys | Insert pair bracket / Insert pair quote" setting (or some another there) -- seems to work OK here.
Looks like I needed to turn on "Surround selection on quote or brace". Thanks.
Precisely. Not sure why I have typed those options while thinking about this one ... must be Friday effect.
