Regarding this issue:

Roman Strobl wrote:
"I agree. This is very annoying if you write multiline string - e.g. you want to
copy them from another application. Try to convert:

pasted line 1
pasted line 2
pasted line 3


String s = "pasted line 1" +
    "pasted line 2" +
    "pasted line 3";

Each time duplicate quotes are typed in."

I think, and I wrote it in the issue, that this example could lead to a refactoring. Select those three lines and refactor it to the concatenated strings.

It is rather a task for java hints. Reassigning.
Comment 2 cbulcu 2008-10-16 19:01:54 UTC
I remembered about this issue :-)

IntelliJ Idea does an interesting job on inserting those kind of text lines between "".

So if you write in the editor:


and then paste

pasted line 1
pasted line 2
pasted line 3

between the "", you get:

"pasted line 1\n" +
"pasted line 2\n" +
"pasted line 3"

so basically it takes the text and surrounds its lines with "", inserts \n after each line before closing the ", and  
concatenates the lines.
