Automatic formatting of HTML on paste


VS HTML editor in Beta 2 sports a small new feature: automatic formatting of HTML on paste. By default it is off, but you can activate it in Tools | Options | Text Editor | HTML | Miscellaneous | Format HTML On Paste. Activating the feature makes editor automatcally format snippet and indent it relatively to its parent.


For example, when I paste HTML comment and A element in a table cell:

<table> 
<tr>
<td>
<!-- Format HTML on paste OFF -->
<a href="www.microsoft.com"></a>
</td>
<td
>
<!-- Format HTML on paste ON -->
<a href="www.microsoft.com"></a>
</td>
</tr>
</table
>

Give the feature a try, you may like it 🙂
