Can't see where to disable autocomplete?

Hi,

Just started using IDEA, and it's pretty good. There is, however, once type of "autocomplete" I'd really like to turn off, but can't see how.

Specifically, when I paste something including quote marks (") into a string, IDEA automatically backquotes them for me - eg, if I paste the string:

var1 = "var1" and

into the line

String debugText = "Variables: var2 = "+var2";

I get this:

String debugText = "Variables: var1 = \"var1\" and var2 = "+var2";

Luckily I noticed this time, but I can't help feeling that this particular "helper" is going to shoot me in the foot if I can't disable it. I'm sure there must be an option for this, but I can't see it anywhere!

You can't unfortunately. Please add your votes at

Lets get this out of the dreaded "To Be Discussed" status.

Ah... well, thanks for the information, at least I won't waste any more time searching for a way to disable it!

This strikes me as a very, erm, unusual feature. No other editor that I'm aware of modifies strings like this as you're pasting them in, so this is a real pain. :(
