I recently discovered this great little free Visual Studio Add-in that allows pasting text as preformatted strings in VB or C#.
Meaning it will turn this text:
This is line 1.
This is line 2.
To this when pasted:
“This is line 1.” & vbCrLf & _
“This is line 2.”
SmartPaster adds itself to the right-click menu and allows some basic customization. So far so good and it has done exactly what I was looking for.
