ReSharper 2020.3 Help

Split Lines containing String Literals

When you type long string literals, ReSharper helps you split the lines and add the necessary quotation marks and plus signs.

While the caret is within a string literal,

ReSharper: Splitting string literals
pressing Enter will split the string correctly so that your code syntax does not get broken:
ReSharper: Splitting string literals

Now, if you delete the + sign, the string parts will be back together without redundant quotes.

Another way of splitting a string literal is to set the caret where you want to split the string, press Alt+Enter and choose Split string. This context action will also add necessary quotation marks and +, but both parts of the string will stay on the same line.
