If this is about electric-PAIR-mode:

Works nicely, except the default `electric-pair-inhibit-predicate'
makes it so that {{ results in "{{_|_}", even though I'd expect

If this is about electric-INDENT-mode:

The global mode does not work well with ido-mode. When opening a new
buffer or file, you have to use C-j to confirm that you really want to
open a non-existing buffer/file. electric-indent-mode inserts the ^J
verbatim instead of this.


Enable ido-mode for buffers

C-x b t C-j should create a new buffer named "t". With
electric-indent-mode, it does not confirm, but adds ^J to the buffer
name. RET then opens a buffer named "t^J". (This might also be a
misfeature in ido, not sure).
