Macros are gone since Visual Studio 2012, but an extension brings textual macro’s back (via Can I record/play Macros in Visual Studio 2012/2013? – Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/02/25

This is why I like the extensions in Visual Studio so much: even though recordable macro’s were removed in Visual Studio 11, textual macros (which I used most) are in the Text Macros for Visual Studio 2012/2013 extension by Xavier Poinas:

You can try this extension (I am the author):

http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/8e2103b6-87cf-4fef-9410-a580c434b602

It basically does the same thing as the Notepad++ macros (text editing, no UI automation).

The code is open source (GitHub), so feel free to contribute improvements :-)

  1. Visual Smarter may be worth to try.

    If you want UI automation, have a look at StudioShell. It’s a powershell integration with the visual studio api. https://studioshell.codeplex.com/
