IntelliJ won't remove pairing qoute/parens/braces etc. when empty anymore


Let's say I type " then IntelliJ will correctly insert the pairing quote, so I'll end up with "" and my cursor is inside "|" (| is cursor).
Normally, if I hit backspace now both quotes get deleted. Since the last update, it seems to only delete one of the quotes and leave me with one standing.

This also applies to (, {, [ and so on.

Did I miss something? Is there a new option to toggle this behaviour?

Can't reproduce. What language/file type do you edit? Please share a sample project where the issue occurs.

Does it happen with the default settings? File | Manage IDE Settings | Restore Default Settings...:

Thanks for your fast answer. Yes, restoring the default settings fixes it for me. Still quite unfortunate that this was needed.
