TroubleShooting

The script will remap keys ([{'"}]) <BS>, 
If auto pairs cannot work, use :imap ( to check if the map is corrected.
The correct map should be <C-R>=AutoPairsInsert("\(")<CR>
Or the plugin conflict with some other plugins.
use command :call AutoPairsInit() to remap the keys.
  • How to insert parens purely

    There are 3 ways

    1. use Ctrl-V ) to insert paren without trigger the plugin.

    2. use Alt-P to turn off the plugin.

    3. use DEL or x to delete the character insert by plugin.
