installed toolbelt this morning, uninstalled this evening due to SSMS UI impact...
I am completely put off by Redgate taking over so much SSMS UI. I was very attracted to some of the tools, but can't work like this. Tried to find way to disable/hide them, but appears uninstall is only way.
I want minimal UI intrusion until such time as I decide I like/want more UI intrusion. We need a way to dial it back to point where all redgate stuff optionally sits under single top menu and/or context menu.
I reckon in meantime I will install tools in a throwaway VM so I can see how they work without impeding my day to day work.
This addon crippled my sql management studio. Even after a couple of restarts. Loading a large stored procedure made my sql management studio cpu usage go up to 50% and use over 1GB of ram. Uninstalling.
Thanks for the feedback. Which bits in particular did you want to hide? We're trying to not be intrusive. In fact, we've only got one top level menu (SQL Prompt) whereas we used to have two (SQL Refactor).
