void LineDown(
	int Count = 1


Type: System.Int32

   ' Get a handle to the new document and create an EditPoint.
   objTextDoc = DTE.ActiveDocument.Object("TextDocument")
   objEditPt = objTextDoc.StartPoint.CreateEditPoint

   'Insert ten lines of text.
   For iCtr = 1 To 10
      objeditpt.Insert("This is a test." & Chr(13))
   Next iCtr
End Sub
