I came across a great tool for Visual Studio that fixes a real issue when pasting code into Visual Studio called Pretty Paste. This is a tool which fixes an issue where copied text into Visual Studio introduces new blank lines and line numbers as shown in the following image:

This is a fantastic tool. Thank you Mads Kristensen for creating this tool for the community!

Download

You can install it from the Extensions and Updates dialog in Visual Studio. Go to Tools | Extensions and Updates and do an online search for pretty paste:
