#246 Cannot Turn Off Inline Tagging

Mike McKee

I have the version of Screem that ships with Ubuntu
Breezy. It's 0.12.1. It's unfortunate that I cannot
turn off inline tagging by any means necessary,
including preferences dialog, gconf-editor, or editing
any manner of text file.

So, for instance, since I have memorized most HTML tags
that I typically use, I do not like typing:

$a = "<

...and seeing a list when I'm only going to type 'BR'.
The BR tag is something I use over and over and over
again in PHP. I don't need autocomplete/inline tagging
for this.

Plus, it's not that I just can ignore the popup because
what happens is that it automatically puts a > in. If
I'm typing fast, I automatically type this character
in. Plus, with my dyslexia, I might not even notice it
when reading or typing. Then, my apps break and it's
hard to track down the bug.

There is a preferences item "Inline Tagging", but
unchecking it proves fruitless for this problem.

If you have fixed this in a new stable release, then
can you get it over to the Ubuntu team so that they can
package it as an update? That way, all I have to do is
"apt-get upgrade" and I receive the new version.

    inline tagging only refers to attribute popups.

    I've made a change in the CVS version now so that the >
    after < is no longer added if intelliclose is off, and the
    popup list of tags will no longer appear if autocomplete
    from tag trees is off.

    as for ubuntu, the breezy backport repository has 0.16.1
    just like dapper has, which will contain quite a few fixes /
    improvments over 0.12.1
