Turn off the red rectangles

Answered

How do I turn off the red rectangles that show in atuocompletes like foreach? After some time I noticed that they don't help much.

These are by design and indicate the places where you should provide some input and hit Enter to confirm it.

Yes, I know. I tried using them for a month or two, but I can't get used to it. I prefer to position the cursor in the autogenerated template manually.

In IDEA I can live with it because it's only on certain blocks. But it's really annoying in phpstorm - it shows red rectangles for function parameters and this is even slower than usual. Instead of typing comma I have to press enter. It confuses me. For complex block like for/foreach loops I can understand, but for function parameters it doesn't speed up anything.

You are welcome to report this usability problem at https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/WI (for PhpStorm product and specify what templates should avoid using red boxes).

Hmm for phpstorm I found how to turn it off - it's an option in settings "smart function parameters completion".

For templates in IDEA I have to think about more what exactly slows me down before I post a usability problem.

 

Thanks for the reply!
