In markdown-mode the cursor goes to the beginning of a line whenever I type any of (),[]{};:, this happens in both GUI and command-line emacs, this only happens in markdown-mode.

How do I stop this from happening?

Emacs version: GNU Emacs 26.1

  • I assume there is a problem with your init file. Try bisecting it to find the culprit. markdown-mode doesn't ship with Emacs, so you'll have to keep it somehow loaded during your testing. You can try commenting out parts of your init file until you find the offending customization.

  • Start Emacs with emacs -Q, to test without your init file.
