Duplicate Line or Selection
One of the ways of creating a code element similar to an existing one (e.g. a nwe method overload, a new auto-implemented property) is cloning the existing element with copy-paste and then editing the clone.
ReSharper helps you streamline the cloning part - with a single keystroke (Ctrl+D) the cloned code is inserted right after the original.
To quickly duplicate the current line or selection
- If you want to clone a line, set the caret at this line line. To clone an arbitrary piece of code, select it in the editor.
- In the main menu, choose or press Ctrl+D.
- The duplicated line is inserted below the original line; the duplicated inline selection is inserted to the right of the original
- If you have duplicated a selection, the selection stays at the clone. If necessary, you can press Ctrl+Shift+Alt and then use arrow keys to move the clone to the desired position.
