The Text Toolset adds some helpful Xcode editor tools to change and transform your source code, for free.

Adds these editor features:
• Toggle Block Comment
• Copy Line
• Duplicate Lines
• Delete Lines
• Uppercase Selections
• Lowercase Selections
• More coming soon...

Developers commonly use these keyboard shortcuts for the above actions: 
- Block Comment: cmd+ctrl+/
- Duplicate Lines: ctrl+shift+D
- Delete Lines: ctrl+shift+K

The features are available in Xcode 8+, under the "Editor" menu, then select "Text Toolset." Make sure a source editor is focused. You may need to enable the Extension in "System Preferences -> Extensions -> Xcode Source Editor".

You can add keyboard shortcuts to the actions in Xcode preferences, under "Key Bindings."

Thnaks but minor update required

Hi, Thanks for your good tool. All is ok but, a minor bug is exist. When you trigger “Delete Line” then, current line will delete successfully and cursor and next lines shift up. This is not true behavior!
The true behavior is when you trigger “Delete line” current line must delete and (cursor must stay at current line, not shift to up line) and next lines must shift up…. Like any others editor that support this functionality (Netbeans, IntelliJ , etc…)
Please fix this problem in the next update. Thanks

Developer Response ,

Thank you for this information. We will try to resolve this in the next release.

I still wonder why this is not in Xcode by default

Every other single text editor has a delete/duplicate line, and this extension finally adds this to Xcode.

Do not forget to enable it from System Preferences -> Extensions, otherwise you don’t get the menus. Afterwards, map the functions to whatever keyw you’re used to and start being productive again :)

Thanks for this extension!
