Using Tab to skip past closing braces

The Visual Studio Productivity Power tools has a cool feature where if some closing quotes or braces were auto-created, then after you're done typing whatever you want in them, you can just hit tab and it will move the cursor past it. It makes it easier since you don't need to reach down and hit the right arrow key, and you basically never need to actually make a tab in such a location.

It would be nice if this was added to ReSharper.

That would be nice, but you are aware that you can just type the closing
paren/bracket and it will "type over" rather than add a new one, right?  And
there's also "Complete Statement" and "ForceCompleteItem" which will do more
than just move the cursor out of the paren...

Yeah, I know. Tab is easier to hit than Shift+) or Shift+".

Don't know what those commands you mentioned are. But it seems to me nice and easy to hit Tab and a straight up improvement to have that choice there.

I agree tab would be an interesting enhancement here.  You should suggested
it via adding an issue to the Tracker.  I just wanted you to be aware of the
other alternatives.  The Complete Statement (Ctrl-Enter I think) is also
pretty useful in many/most cases.

Okay, I opened an issue on it:

But Ctrl+Enter is supposed to be complete statement, eh? No wonder the VS insert blank line shortcut stopped working.
