[Lazarus] How to disable specific code generation feature

I'm getting increasingly frustrated with Lazarus IDE again. It is
generating rubbish code, especially since I use TAB character
indentation, and not 2-Space indentation.

Anyway, how do I disable the code completion (or whatever you call it),
after I press the ENTER key after I typed "begin".

As you can see from the attached screenshot....

1)  The "end;" was generated at the completely wrong indentation level.
This happens the whole time, so I would like to disable this code
generation thingy, but where???? I looked everywhere in the editor
settings and Code Templates. What is it called, and where do I disable it?

2) The "finally" code was correctly indented, but after Lazarus inserted
the "end;" code it decided for good measure to screw with my surrounding
code too! Arghhhhhh!

The joys of editors trying to be too clever!

I assume if I can disable (1), then (2) should not happen any more.

Any tips on how to disable (1)?
