Comment expansion incomplete
« on: June 14, 2012, 01:39:47 pm »
I type /** to create function headers, but in v17 it appears to be incomplete.  My expansion adds a blank line after the comment block, and in v16 this worked.  In v17 it won't add the blank line.  It won't add any number of blank lines, or any lines containing spaces.  Using escape sequences doesn't work either.  %\l is supposed to leave a blank line but it doesn't.

How do I get the blank line to be kept in the comment expansion?

Reproduced it.  As a workaround, you can go to Document -> C/C++ Options, and uncheck the "Beautify alias exapansions" box.  I'll try to get this fixed for the first hotfix.
