In Microsoft’s Visual Studio Editor Search Without Hurting Paste Buffer

Posted by Peter Kellner on September 04, 2014 · 1 min read

I know this seems kind of trivial but I just accidentally discovered a feature in Visual Studio that probably all in all has cost me many many lost seconds of productivity.  I often find myself in visual studio with something in my paste buffer but want to search for something else in code. I know this sounds a little obtuse but if you know what I’m talking about and you don’t do it yourself, this will save you a bunch of time.

I’m in  them middle of full speed prep for Silicon Valley Code Camp (which is what this program I am using for the example below is) as well as working on my next Sencha ExtJS 5 upgrade Plurasight video so I have my tools all cranked up. I thought I’d quickly share a video of what I’m talking about.

Here you go!
