How can we improve SQL Search?

allow text copy in the result panel

After searching we try to copy some text (for example the stored procedure name) in the result panel. This fails with the error: "unsaved documents cannot be cut or copied to the clipboard...." (alert box)

    Here are the steps to fix this SSMS issue:

    - Restart SSMS
    - Go to Tools → Options
    - Expand “Environment” on the left and click the “Documents” item
    - De-select “Show Miscellaneous files in Solution Explorer”
    - Click OK

    In order for this to be effective, either restart Management Studio or close/save any unsaved query windows (after which point, new, unsaved query windows should not cause this problem any more)

    We are now closing this suggestion so that votes are reallocated.

    Thanks
