I read the docs (at bottom) but can't figure this out.
I just started using "abbrev.el", and find that pressing space, tab, C-x ', C-x a ', C-x a e can cause the expansion to happen.
what if I find it dangerous for the expand to happen on tab and space, how can I tell abbrev.el to not expand when pressing tab/space,
I still want to keep the ability to expand using "C-x ', C-x a ', C-x a e"
C-x ' runs the command expand-abbrev (found in global-map), which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in ‘abbrev.el’. It is bound to C-x ', C-x a ', C-x a e. (expand-abbrev) Expand the abbrev before point, if there is an abbrev there. Effective when explicitly called even when ‘abbrev-mode’ is nil. Before doing anything else, runs ‘pre-abbrev-expand-hook’. Calls the value of ‘abbrev-expand-function’ with no argument to do the work, and returns whatever it does. (That return value should be the abbrev symbol if expansion occurred, else nil.)
