  1. Current behaviour: let's say we're editing a multi-statement script. The cursor is in the middle of one of the statements. Some other statements in the script are broken (i.e. have invalid syntax) but the one under the cursor is perfectly valid. We hit Shift-F5, expecting the current statement to be executed. Instead, we get a syntax error on some other piece of the script half a mile down the screen.

    Expected behavior: just run whatever is under the cursor and ignore all other parts of the script.

  2. In the setting of SQL Prompt there should be an option to create a list of servers.

    When SSMS then starts It should automatically create a connection to this list of servers in Object Explorer.

    It would be a great feature, when working with the same servers, it takes a long time to connect to servers everyday when work starts :-)

  3. Request title:
    SSMS add a pane with a vertical list of open queries
    Description:
    In SSMS add a pane with a vertical list of open queries similar to the Object Explorer pane that can be docked/undocked that you can see the entire file name and quickly navigate or choose from the entire list of tabs of open query files to choose from.
    So, instead of horizontal tabs where the file name and other details that are partially hidden or don’t appear if many files are open, have an option to show a vertical list of open files.
    Add ability to…

  4. Selecting code then pressing CTRL brings up the action list, but only 6 items are shown in this list, meaning that for many uses, scrolling or searching (moving is required. A longer list (ideally user-settable) would mean moving mouse directly to most items and selecting is possible.

  5. Currently I have query tabs in two separate windows within SSMS to view data and queries side by side. After closing and re-opening, it would be great if these segregated tabs went back into their appropriate windows. Along with that, it would be great if it would only load back in the tabs for the server we are connected too. Not also the tabs that I had open in a different instance of SSMS to a different server; which I had displayed on a different monitor for more side by side viewing.

  6. When text is selected, Control D would create a copy of that text. If no text is selected, the current line of the cursor will be duplicated.

    Much like the behavior of Excel to carry down cell values (and a popular Visual Studio plugin), this will allow users to keep the text on their clipboard to paste it over part of the SQL that was just duplicated (like the contents of a where clause).

  8. SQL Prompt gives me a warning when I execute a query or batch that would truncate a table or that includes an update or delete without where clause.
    Is it possible to get a similar warning when I execute a query or batch that runs an insert, update, delete, or merge statement against a table or view that has a trigger? (ideally the warning would only fire if the trigger is not deactivated, and if it is for the correct operation)

  9. I would like to be able to better automate our onboarding process for new developers by helping ensure their snippets folder, formatting style folder and default formatting style are correctly setup. Additionally we would like to be able to automatically import settings from UNC/source control for them. This reduces the inevitability that something is missed when trying to follow a setup guide we have to additionally maintain. Thanks!

  11. So I'm not sure if this is something that SQL Prompt has the ability to do or not as far as access to SSMS.

    When you customize syntax coloring in SSMS, it sees variables, tables, column names, etc all as the same thing...."Identifiers"....I would love it if I were able to specify a different coloring scheme for variables, separate from the rest of the identifiers.

  12. While using Shift-F5 to execute the current statement, any BEGIN TRANSACTIONS above your UPDATE are ignored, running it not in a transaction.
    I shouldn't use Shift-F5 probably, but it's becoming a habit and could be very expensive when forgetting to highlight-execute.

  13. As we are using a dedicated group of virtual machines for using our high privilege accounts, we don't know at login time on which machine we will have a session. Currently the settings of SQL Prompt are stored under “…\AppData\Local...”. After each logoff we loose these settings. According to the Microsoft standards, the settings should be stored under “…\Appdata\Roaming...”. Could this be changed in a future version?

  14. Ability to easily identify user-created snippets from default Redgate snippets.

    I love snippets and I create a ton of them, but there's no easy way for me to filter the list of snippets to see which ones I created vs the ones that shipped with the product. I'd love the ability to be able to filter the list of snippets to show my custom snippets so I can find them easily.

    (My work around is just to use a naming convention that groups them all, but this feels inefficient because it requires that I type more letters to activate the…

  15. As a consultant I move around to many computers. I depend on this product, but it is often a chore to keep track of where it is active. It would be a real quality of life improvement if I could just login to the machine I'm using and type in my redgate creds to activate sql prompt and get on with it. So often I'm running into an activation error, followed by a support call to find where the product is in use, then deactivate it, the activate on the new machine repeat, repeat, repeat...

    I understand you make money…

  16. I use actions (from the ctrl menu) a lot. It would be extremely handy if I could re-do last action on the currently selected text by simply hitting Ctrl-Y (rather than hitting Ctrl and selecting it from the list of actions again and again).

  17. I spent a lot of time setting up custom directories for various products/features and its frustrating how SQL Prompt resets this with each new update forcing me to go back and change all these paths/defaults back to what they were before.

  18. I don't use SQL Prompt in Visual Studio and likely never will. However, every time I update, the updater defaults to installing it for VS and updating SSMS. It would be nice if the update process defaulted to only doing updates.

  19. I wanted to put this one level up (all Redgate), but did not see a way to do that.

    When you guys release an update, I do not see any choice but to open each tool, one at a time, and check to see if it was updated. There should be one interface that I can open that will check every product I have installed and install the appropriate updates. The current is much more time consuming than it should be and extremely inconvenient. If you have such a tool now, it should be easier to find.

    I thought Redgate…

  20. It would be very helpful if there was an outline for the script being edited. Say, a script has many "CREATE PROC"s. We could have a tree or a list or a drop-down, to view a list of CREATE PROCs and click to scroll to the section.

    If a tree style is selected, this could be expanded into seconds inside each PROCs.
