Description Patrick Timm 2012-06-19 08:57:05 UTC
While writing an XML header for a method I noticed that the cursor jumped to end of an auto-inserted XML tag.

To reproduce:

Begin an XML header. Type "<c" and select "c". Cursor is now positioned right after "<c></c>[cursor]" instead of "<c>[cursor]</c>".

It is the same for "<remarks>" and probably the rest of the tags.

Not a big thing, but kind of annoying :)

I forgot to mention that this happens while editing C# files. I have not tested with other languages.

For other languages it's pretty easy - there it's not supported at all :)
