I am sure I am not alone in noticing this, but there seems to be unexpected gui behavior when clicking on the paste code option in questions (and answers) *not when the code is initially highlighted, but as an initial event with the intention of pasting code. Most of the SO users I take it, ask and respond to questions with code that is already formatted in our IDE of choice, yet I have continuously noticed that when one clicks (or uses the hot keys) for pasting code that:
- indented code is not pasted with the correct indentation.
- code with no indentation at times only indents the first line.
Probably numerous other examples of how this feature does not work as one would expect. As a user I am suggesting at minimal that pasted code be highlighted automatically so that one can just use hot keys on this or something similar.
Forgive me if I am alone in these issues, but I doubt I am.
