    Hi!

    New to the forum (which is great!) and I have a question regarding the threads.

    Within threads there are sometimes text formatted as Code and that "codesnippet" you sometimes wants to copy into Visual Studio.

    The problem is that the line-numbers always comes with the copied text into Visual Studio which makes it a bit tedious to remove all those line-numbers.

    Is there any other way to copy code from a thread or should this be considered a "feature" ? ;)

    I believe that if you do a text-only paste (crtl+shift+v), the line numbers are stripped, as they're formatting, not actual text.
