[Suggestion] Escaping characters on copy - paste
blex last edited by
If I copy some text to Clipboard and past it into the editor on forum page then it is modified in some magical way on display.
I do not want to escape each back-slash character in the copied text, for example.
Is it possible to display the text pasted in the editor in the same way as it war originally displayed in the other window? I mean "on-the-fly" escaping of special characters on past operation?

One huge problem I've noticed on this topic is quotation marks.
Even in code blocks!
See the "on the fly" above?
Try copying the code and you get angled quotation marks that won't work in the IDE. Code should be code - no modifications!
So it's a problem the other way too.

When I copy a code I copy and paste it to notepad. It does not add any "" to it then. However, it should be fixed if it happens with IDE.
