JUMP TO ANOTHER FORUM

  1. For example on a stored procedure, it's time consuming to first click select object in explorer, then right click on the object, then click modify. For a table, same, but clicking design. Plus sometimes if the database sproc isn't expanded yet its slow as the left side menu bounces around expanding first...

  2. Add "Find Next/Previous" buttons in the Text area, so, it will jump to the next occurrence of the searched term (highlighted) in the text.

  3. There's already been a suggestion to add next/previous matches, and this doesn't replace that, but helps to show where in the script the next match is (a bit like the difference highlighter on the vertical scroll bar in SQL Compare)

  4. You cannot open multiple search tabs in SSMS. This might be by design, but the ability to have multiple search tabs open at the same time rather than having to open new SSMS windows would make the product more flexible and allow easier searching into "child" issues found from the first search result.

  6. When I change server SQL Search indexes all databases on that server before I can do anything, this takes ~ 1 min.

    Please, if you could preselect only the database that is default for the current user on the server.

    This would speed up my work considerably.
    This was not an issue before multiple database search.

    Best regards.

  7. I would like to see history of my search and to be able to re use it fast, right away in search box. The idea is that almost all the time I’m working with 2-4 tables, SP and views and it will be helpful to me to get last 10 used search text at once. A text is selected when I do Navigate to Object function.

    The list could be like combobox or like auto complete /with text that has been used already/.

    I’m sure this will be in help for all persons using you great search tool. I’m using…

  8. Can the gui be changed to include line numbers on the left hand side. It'll make it easier to find the actual line in long procs etc.

  9. It would be nice to be able to filter results on schema. We have a number of large databases with multiple schemas. When we're looking for a common phrase or word, it would be nice to be able to select a schema or multiple schemas to narrow down the results.

  10. Add a stop/start button to the search process.
    If you change the criteria, it immediately starts searching for that criteria before you get a chance to change some of the other parameters.
    Worst case scenario it eats up all the memory and crashes SSMS if you search against "All Databases" on a production server.
    Give some control back to the UI.

  11. The product requires you to have at least read access to all databases on provided server... because when the product opens... and db access is lacking... then USER is failing login attempts on PRODUCTION SERVERS to which user has no access. This creates GREAT FRUSTRATION for DBA and AUDITing groups.

  12. It would be nice to have the option to show or hide some of the different columns in our search results. I rarely ever need to see the "Schema" or "Detail" columns in the search results. They are just real estate wasting columns for me 95% of the time I'm using SQL Search so it would be awesome if I could hide those for when I want to dock the SQL Search under the properties or object explorer panels.

  15. Similar to SSMS now where it highlights the side bar with each instance of the matched string, in the results window show me each instance that text was found.
    Also like the SSMS find feature, allow me to jump to each instance of the matching text within the page.

  16. Allow users to select to use a dark theme for SQL Search, ideally this would pick up from their settings (if on Windows at least)

  18. I'd like to use my preferred monospaced font cosnsistent with SSMS. I cant find any option to change font in SQL search.

    It'll be absolutely great if I could change font for SQL search results.

  19. Ability to maintain settings between searches. When I switch back and forth and open and close it, it goes back to SEARCH ALL, but when I am working, I am usually focused on something and it's quite painful to have to reset the settings almost every-time., We need a checkbox option to PERSIST SETTINGS.

    When I am working on something I am usually working in one or two databases but we have 50 databases, I don't need to search all those all the time. I am usually looking for where column names are within tables, I love all the features…
