There is a nice shortcut for assingment to pointer:
Class* ptr = [new Class()]
Can you please add same thing for shared_ptr and unique_ptr?

Thank you.

That makes a lot of sense, I have put in a feature request to see what our developers make of this:

case=92897 is implemented in build 2086

By default, VA will suggest two forms of make_shared/make_unique. The suggestions can be configured via the registry DWORD value named "SmartPointerSuggestionStyles".

The value is a bitfield and can be any combination of:
1 --> offers std::make_shared<CFoo>()
2 --> offers std::make_shared<CFoo>(
4 --> offers std::make_shared<CFoo>($end$)

The default value is 3 (1 | 2) -- two suggestions by default.

Each bit value adds a different suggestion to the suggestion list

std::shared_ptr<CFoo>() pw =

suggestions are:
1 std::make_shared<CFoo>()
2: std::make_shared<CFoo>(
4: std::make_shared<CFoo>($end$)

1 and 3 differ only by caret position after insert (3 leaves caret between the parens, whereas 1 leaves caret at end of inserted text).
