    If it's not a global thing, give us options

    Here's the code
    retVal = 1;

    If my cursor is here
    retVal = <cursor>1;

    and I type a quote...

    Give me the option to pick my default action (not in a popup, but in the options screen)
    1) Wrap the 1 in quotes
    2) Just use a single quote in front of the 1
    3) DoubleQuotes in front

    I would bet #3 would almost never be set by anyone, yet that's the default (and only) action right now.

    Defaulting to this:
    retVal = "<cursor>"1;
    Is getting so annoying, it causes you MORE keystrokes because if you just wanted the one depending on which you delete it might delete both and cause you to re-do it

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the great feedback.
    We see more and more people requesting this. We will definitely consider these improvements for the next release.
    While looking in your specific case we came up with another idea - a new keyboard shortcut to enclose selection with quotes: Ctrl+". Would like to see such feature in JustCode?

    Kind regards,

    Not really :)

    I'd rather have it know that if my cursor was butted up against some text it just puts a single, and maybe if I hit Ctrl-" it puts the single and throws the closing quote somewhere else on the line (but detection might be hard)

    Or, I dont know if it does this now, but if I have a block of text selected and hit " have it wrap in the quote (which is essentially what I'm trying to do.

    The unintelligent forced double right now is just a pain in the ass

    Hello Steve,

    Thanks for the feedback.
    We will implement improvements for the typing assistance in the upcoming service pack. The improvements will be in the direction of not automatically closing double quotes in some cases (yours is one of them). We plan an internal build in the beginning of next week. Feel free to give it a try.
    We will consider adding all or some of your suggested options for the Q2 release.

    Regards,
