I tried to write this answer to a question. Every time I tried to type the variable name
yas-snippet-dirs, a period was automatically added after that name, as soon as I typed a space char or a backtick. (The same happened for this question post.)
The workaround I found was to delete the final
s from the variable name, insert a comma or other non-space char, and then go back and add the final
I am using IE11, in case that is relevant. (Not sure this is autocompletion, but something is inserting that period.)
(I searched for similar questions, but didn't find any. Please excuse if this is in fact a duplicate.)
UPDATE: Apparently that description was not clear enough. Let me try to clarify.
I type "yas-snippet-dirs" (without the quotes).
I type a space or a backtick.
As soon as I do #2, the text I've typed changes to "yas-snippet-dirs." (without the quotes), followed by the space or backtick. A period was added automatically, just after "dirs".
As a workaround, I then go back and remove the period.
The same thing happens with just the text "dirs", BTW -- no need for the prefix "yas-snippet-" to reproduce it.
Sorry for the noise. It was IE (plus my ignorance). I finally figured out how to turn off the spell-check. Sorry for the noise. Feel free to close this question.
