Join/Split String

The one new feature of 2.5.2 that was just released is listed as
"Join/Split" string.

Can you provide some documentation on what it is, what it does, and how to
use it? (new keypress? New intention action?)

One of my biggest issues with Resharper is that there is so much good stuff
in there, but so much of it is hidden (like where to put the cursor for some
of the intention actions, along with some stuff being turned off by default,
and being buried in the setup screens, etc).

Thanks for any info!

Hello Paul,

It converts "ab|cd" (vertical bar is caret) into "ab" + "cd" and back. I
hope to reveal some things in my blog: http://resharper.blogspot.com/

I've just read "Jedi Trick Level 3" in your blog - man, that's very sweet,
I love it :)

How does one invoke this command? I can't figure out how... I see no
keyboard short-cut for it, and no lightbulb pops up for an intention
action...

Hello Paul,

The context action appears when you stand inside a string literal

How does one invoke this command? I can't figure out how... I see no
keyboard short-cut for it, and no lightbulb pops up for an intention
action...

No, it doesn't. I can let the cursor sit inside a string literal all day,
and nothing happens.

In fact, I see no sign of this feature anywhere. It is not in the list of
"Context Actions" either. Are you sure this feature made it in?

Hello Paul,

It is occasionally marked as closed in 2.5.2. It is closed in 3.0. Thank
you for finding this out.

No, it doesn't. I can let the cursor sit inside a string literal all

list of "Context Actions" either. Are you sure this feature made it

So just to be clear... it's not a new feature of 2.5.2 at all, but a feature
of 3.0?

Will there be a 2.5.3, and if so, will this feature appear there? :)

We will update website, of course. Thanks for letting us know.
