Another "Insert from Visual Studio" Plugin
Rick Strahl just posted a new plugin for pasting source code from Visual Studio. If you’ve tried to paste from Visual Studio into Writer before, you’ve no doubt noticed that all the coloring gets stripped. Visual Studio puts plain text and RTF on the clipboard; only the RTF version has the coloring information, and alas, Writer doesn’t know how to import RTF.
Anyway, Rick’s version one-ups Douglas Stockwell’s plugin by removing excess leading indentation–a nice touch. (Update 1/6/2008: Turns out Douglas one-upped himself by adding the same feature last November.)
Hey Rick, it’s nice that you distribute the source, but how about a binary distribution too, for us lazy types? 🙂
