Then instead of pasting once for each line, press Shift Alt down to set 
cursors on each line
Do one single paste.

If I count correctly, one keystroke more (assuming that Delphi includes 
cursor down, in the paste).
If in Delphi you do paste,down,paste,down,...  Then in Lazarus its less 

However, multi caret works only when there are no lines to skip (well 
you can set carets individually, but thats more work)

See my other reply:
- Yes it should be added. (as build in)
- You can (in 2.0.10) add a macro that does it....
