ReSharper 2018.2 Help

Splitting Lines with 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,

split literal 1
pressing Enter will split the string correctly so that your code syntax does not get broken:
split literal 2

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.
