Hi,

In VS2019 Pro you can hover over a macro and view it fully expanded in the tooltip. The issue with this is that when the expanded code is quite large, which it often is when dealing with nested macros, you can't view it all in the tooltip, and there's no option to copy to clipboard etc. The only option I've found so far is to review the entire preprocessed file, but this is rather time consuming. It'd be neat if Visual Assist could handle this via a hotkey (e.g 'Alt + Enter' to expand macro inline)

Cheers,
Jake

This is an interesting idea that we are considering having a go at, at some point in time:
