Matching brackets

#1 Matching brackets

Very useful feature, but I feel it would be better if matching brackets were only shown when the cursor is on a bracket (to the left of a bracket). Currently matching brackets are also shown when the cursor is placed behind a bracket, that is somewhat confusing, because due to the coloured background of the bracket, the cursor is hard to see.

Thanks idefix2! This has been bothering me for a long time, but I didn't know what was bothering me. Whenever I wrote the last parenthesis of a function, the highlighting irritated me. Over time I got into the habit of always moving the caret forward 1 character, but as idefix2 says, it bothers a little.

It would be nice to me too if this really useful feature would show the highlighting only when the caret is in front of the bracket. smiling smiley

Thank you.
