Question about typing the code settings
When writing my code, how do I set my settings so, like in the video, I can type <h1> and have </h1> come up automatically and be able to continue to type without deleting the </h1> the program just made for me.
for example i just typed "<h1>"
''' <h1></h1> '''
then immediately after the system gave me a </h1>
how do i write my code so when i type while these two are generated the brackets will ove with my typing so this doesn't happen, for example.
has been happening (below) i begin to type "he"
''' <h1>he1h> '''
want to happen (below) i just typed "he"
''' <h1>he</h1> '''

Hi there! I believe the insertion method of typing is incorrect. Try hitting the "Insert" button exactly once (it's a toggle) and try this again. When I try it in workspaces, if I toggle it to the other setting I experience what you are experiencing where it writes over what is already written there. When I hit the "Insert" key once, it stops this behavior.
Hope this helps!
