Is there a way to copy and paste onto multiple lines without displacing text?
So I think it’s best just to provide an example cause it’s hard to explain
so Imagine I have
and I need to copy four items one on each line
Is there a way to do so without it becoming
I’m really uncertain as to what you’re asking about, but…as long as your paste-point is in the same column in the multiple lines (like it is in your example above), all you have to do is obtain a “column caret” and do the paste.
For example, put the caret to the right of the “1” in your example. Press Shift+Alt+DownArrow three times (this will give you a column-caret on the four lines after the numbers. Then…paste. Whatever is in the clipboard (which is hopefully without line-endings) will appear on each line after the number that is already there.
If I’m off-base about what you’re asking for, I’m sorry, and could you please clarify?
Alright I’ll try and clarify
so I have two documents, I’ll show some of whats on them
the first one is
and so on
the other one is
Now I want to copy the three of those and paste it so that only one goes on each line so that it’s
Ah, okay…in your first posting all the things to paste in were the same (“item”). Since they are actually different, copy them as a column block from their source (hopefully also Notepad++) using Shift+Alt+arrows to define the column block, and invoke copy. Then, at the intended destination, on the first line, invoke a paste.
