When I copy vb code from a post to try locally, pasting the code always results in the removal of blank lines. It doesn't matter if I paste into Visual Studio or TextPad. Blank lines are never maintained. If I paste into VB, indentation is recreated based on the code structure, however, pasting into TextPad results in all code being left aligned and indented by four spaces no matter what the code structure or the indentation on the originally posted code.

It worked ok for me, using this thread as test, then pasted it into Visual Studio and Notapad. How did you copy it to the clipboard? I just double clicked the code, then after seeing it turn blue I right clicked and selected copy from the popup menu.

I click and drag. I see that double clicking does it correctly. I'll do that from now on. Thanks.
