Move Selection to Single Line – Visual Code

Hi everyone,

A quick post on how to merge a multiline block into a single line using Visual Studio Code:

-- From this
CREATE TABLE posts
(
    post_id INT IDENTITY(1,1) PRIMARY KEY,
    title VARCHAR(100),
    description VARCHAR(MAX),
    user_id VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
    created DATETIME NOT NULL,
    updated DATETIME NOT NULL,
    version INT NOT NULL,
    up_votes INT NOT NULL,
    down_votes INT NOT NULL,
    updated DATETIME NOT NULL
);

-- To this
CREATE TABLE posts ( post_id INT IDENTITY(1,1) PRIMARY KEY, title VARCHAR(100), description VARCHAR(MAX), user_id VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL, created DATETIME NOT NULL, updated DATETIME NOT NULL, version INT NOT NULL, up_votes INT NOT NULL, down_votes INT NOT NULL, updated DATETIME NOT NULL )

Simply highlight your code block, press F1, and then type “join lines”. Pressing enter will join everything. If you’re on a mac you can also use ctrl+j.

Tab Key not Working as Expected – Visual Code

Hi everyone,

I ran into a bit of a strange issue with visual code today. Tabs suddenly stopped working for creating an indent. Instead, the focus of the cursor changed.

It turns out that I’d inadvertently toggled a setting that causes the tab key to move focus instead of indenting. The hotkey in windows is ctrl + m.

Thanks to this link for the find: https://github.com/Microsoft/vscode/issues/21638
