I just upgraded to the latest version, and do lots of equations. Having a programming background I am used to closing my brackets and braces, so I can understand how the auto close bracket/brace would be good for a new user.

How can I disable it, since I can type most of my equations out directly?

I frequently use libreoffice to prepare math presentations. Being used to type my own code for math formulas (e.g. latex) I find the automatic closing of brackets, parenthesis and braces rather impractical as it often leads to errors. I also would like to find out how to disable that feature. Currently I am using libreoffice version on LinuxMint 17 (quiana).

Thanks so much!

Has this disable function been implemented yet in the main build ? I can't find any documentation about it nor have I found a setting that allows to disable the auto-complete in LibreOffice Math

Hooray! This is implemented in development and planned to be available in 5.1.0, according to the bug discussion at Like others here, I am looking forward to this very much.
