Starting with VS2019 16.2.0 Preview 3.0, the C++ 'Extend multi-line comments' feature is adding an extra newline after pressing Enter, bringing the caret into a new empty line just below the auto-extended new comment line.

Before pressing Enter:

After pressing Enter:

A pity I love this feature! :-)

I've received a response from IncrediBuild support:
"we are working on the fix. The problem is with the IB add-in so one of the Solutions is to revert the add-in version back to (no need to downgrade IB)."

Thanks for sleuthing that out. It turns out it is the cause of much trouble that started recently: https://forums.wholetomato.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=16657

This is really odd.

Apparently the issue is only present when I have the "IncrediBuild Build Acceleration" (version extension enabled. (I don't think that's the same version as the one available for download on the VS Marketplace I have mine installed through IncrediBuild's own installer.)

As far as I know, the IncrediBuild extension does nothing with the editor at all. I certainly don't know what it should be doing with the editor.

So, thanks for solving my immediate problem, though the actual issue remains a strange one...

I'm not able to repro this problem. Do you have any other extensions installed?
