Select lines of text to go into a block.
Press '{'.
VA inserts enclosing lines with '{' and with closing '}' then formats those selected lines, including collapsing multiple spaces into a single one, then tabs selected lines.

To remove format errors, press Ctrl-Z, to undo format changes (also undoes indent), re-select the original lines selected, then press tab to get section moved to the right correctly.

Note: "Format after paste" is not set.

When you surround with {}s, we ask Visual Studio to do the formatting. Visual Studio has a lot of formatting options so you might be able to set it the way you prefer:

Tools -> Options... -> Text Editor -> C/C++ -> Formatting

Does this help?
