This is the sort of question I feel stupid for asking, because almost certainly it's just due to me missing a checkbox in the options somewhere. But...
Is there any way to tell PhpStorm that I really don't want it to complete my HTML tags for me?
I've unchecked all the seemingly relevant options in the IDE preferences (Editor > Smart Keys > Automatically insert closing tag, Emmet > Enable XML Emmet, etc.), but still, when I type an opening DIV tag and then start to type the closing tag, PhpStorm completes the closing tag as soon as I type the slash. Which is really frustrating since I'm used to just typing it myself, so having PhpStorm "help" me throws off my typing rhythm.
Like I said, I'm sure this is just a case of operator cluelessness, so any enlightenment that can be offered would be gratefully received.
So it's a bug! At least that means I'm not as dumb as I thought I was
I would not call it "a bug" (at all) -- but rather missing option / not implemented feature (at the end of the day "automatically insert closing tag" and "inserting closing tag after typing </" are two different things -- at very least for me; but yes -- they can make that option to be applied in both scenarious).
