“auto_match_enabled”: false
“auto_indent”: false


  • If reproduceable in safe mode, then it’s a core issue. Report to GitHub issue tracker, period.

  • Otherwise, I would suggest you post a plugin list. Or enable sublime.log_commands(True) in the console to see what command is triggered so that you may have a clue.



Nope it is same with clean install its some kind a feature of sublime



Just test it with safe mode. “Clean install” won’t make any difference unless you clean up all setup.

Here’s the correct way to do a “clean install”:
But to save your time and potential data lost, just use safe mode for testing.

Btw, I don’t see an issue in your screenshot.



Look on the yellow square, when i press left or right - it disappeared.
It some kind of option i think.
I think Its waiting that i must enter something and than close quotes… But i do not need it.



I am fairly sure with a fresh ST without any configuration, you won’t see a yellow box. So if you are relunctant to test it in safe mode or providing a plugin list. Our journey ends here.

:grinning: Could you also run sublime.log_commands(True) in ST console (can be opened by ctrl+`). And then do what you think giving weird results, and post console output during doing it?



you right

command: unmark_undo_groups_for_gluing

how to investigate which plugin or option it is?



usually I just google it or search it on github.



So the command comes from the Vintage plugin, which is ignored by default but you enabled it by commenting out that line. If this is not intentional, just ignore the Vintage plugin and it should be fixed.



nope the same

i tried turning all the plugins on and off and nothing changed and i ended up forgetting Vintage to turn it off. But this did not change the situation

I guess you’d have to redo this to find the offending command.



The problem is very strange and its about Language MAC OS layout ))

When you use key layout U.S International - PC on MAC OS you have this problem (strange insert mode). When using layout US, there is no such problem.

Can you try on your side?



And it is interesting that when you press a key for example ”,in the keyboard layout international US, sublime does not output anything to the console on firs press, although a symbol appears on the screen in some special mode with yellow square around…
