Or Grrrrrr! Why is Emmet not working?!?
So this is a really superficial issue but it is one I have solved before, promptly forgot about, and have had to figure out again. The problem stems from the VSCode setting
editor.quickSuggestions. If this setting is enabled it will, surprisingly enough, give you quick suggestions to complete your line. However, it can always get in the way if you use Emmet which I use the heck out of it. As you can see in the screenshot above I am trying to add a div element. If I were to hit tab to expand that element it would be replaced with
deleteClientVariable(name). That is awesome, but not what I want.
The solution for me was to set the
editor.quickSuggestions flag to false in my settings.json file and tag expansion is happily working again. I made sure to write it own this time so I can promptly forget about it again.
