Let's say I use ctrl+= (free form input) in an answer to get an Entity or whatever. What's the best way to add that in a code block?

Has this issue come up since V10 has been released?

My only thoughts are to use a screenshot, or ctrl+=["query"] but these don't seem like the optimal solution.

Personally I would use the entity directly. Since the input method is not part of the code, I'd mention it separately. For example:

school = Entity["University", "UniversityOfIllinoisAtUrbanaChampaign145637"]
GeoNearest["City", school]
(* {Entity["City", {"Champaign", "Illinois", "UnitedStates"}]} *)

(You can enter school as CTRL+= uiuc)
