             Bug #: 224754
        Issue Type: ENHANCEMENT
           Summary: Variables window: Strings: Don't convert newlines to
                    spaces when selecting (c&p a nightmare)
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: debugger

I have a simple, common use case. I want to copy a string in the variables
window and paste it into code (often when writing a unit test). The problem is
that while the variables window shows the escaped newline characters (ready 
for
c&p), as soon as you click into it they get turned into spaces. What good are
spaces? What can I do with them? Of course, I can click "..." and see the
newlines as newlines, but pasting that as an escaped string is also a problem
(there are plugins, but even they can be frustrating).

Keep the newlines (and other special chars) escaped when selecting text in the
variables window. Converting newlines to spaces does nobody any good.
