Pasting Items from Clipboard History

ReSharper | Edit | Paste…

With ReSharper, you can access your clipboard history and quickly paste any of the recent items copied to the clipboard. ReSharper starts recording copied items to its clipboard history as soon as you start Visual Studio and clears the history when you close it.

To paste an item from clipboard history

  1. Place the caret in the position to insert one of the recently copied items.
  2. Press Ctrl+Shift+V or choose ReSharper | Edit | Paste… in the main menu.
  3. ReSharper will show you the list of items that you have copied since Visual Studio start.

  4. Do one of the following:
    • Start typing any substring from copied elements to display items containing this substring.
    • Use the up and down keys to navigate through the items, previewing them in a pop-up.
    • Click Show in modal dialog /help/img/dotnet/2016.3/ThemedIcon.SearchResults.Screen.[Gray].png or press + on the numeric keypad to study clipboard items in a dialog.
  5. If you choose to study clipboard items in a dialog, you can paste any item by pressing the number or letter that is displayed next to it. To see the full text of copied blocks, you can switch between them with arrow keys or click them. To paste the selected item, press Enter or click Paste.
