One of the things I end up doing sometimes in Visual Studio is copying blank lines. It’s not that I want to copy a blank line…it’s simply that I get interrupted while using ctrl+c/ctrl+v and end up messing things when I return to the desk. Since I’ve just ended up copying another blank line, I’ve lost a few seconds and opened the options window to see if I could control it from there. And yes, I can:


And there you go: no more blank line copying for me! (I’m blogging about this now because I’m currently using VS 2010 without resharper! If I had resharper, things would be much better :),,)

    Hey, add shift to your CTL+V paste and you can cycle thru recent copies, so you can skip over to the copy you want to paste.
