  1. Arrow keys + mouse on Tab History

    When using tab history it is very handy to use up and down arrow keys.

    The problem is when using arrow down and the mouse has been left over the list, Once bottom of the list has been reached; the scroll will start again from the mouses position and not just keep moving down from last arrow/highlighted position.

    • Reconnect based on server

      When SSMS start and had tabs opened, it tries to reconnect to each tab and the startup is extremely slow especially if a server is not available (it happens very often when working with VPN's customers, for instance).
      What about a servers list to which to reconnect, instead of an on/off feature? We could enable for local and disable for external servers, for instance

      • Import "Tab History" feature of SQL Prompt in Visual Studio, just like it is in SSMS.

        Import "Tab History" feature of SQL Prompt in Visual Studio, just like it is in SSMS. That feature is beautiful just the way it is in SSMS, would be nice to have it in Visual Studio as well.

            Tab History - Open all Closed Tabs. Add a button to open all Closed Tabs in history. Possibly add a warning that this will take up much RAM.

            • Ping Tabs in History

              It would be really nice to be able to pin a tab in the history. On a daily basis, I can work with dozens to hundreds of tabs. My tab history gets extremely cluttered with stuff I no longer need, but it buries the stuff I want to stay in my tab history.

              That means I have two choices:
              1. Scroll to the bottom of a very long list about 10 - 15 times and open then close the tabs I want to stay in history, just so that they are the most recent ones open. Then I can actually…

              • Tab History Cloud Sync

                Option to sync/store tab history in the cloud, network share, or online share (aka One drive, Google drive, dropbox, etc.) That way you don't loose your history when you upgrade or change your computer and have to start all over again. It would also be nice to be able to sync between multiple computers.

                • Enable "reconnect to server" on tab activation rather than SSMS startup

                  I frequently have a lot of tabs open, and this makes startup painfully slow. I would like this to work the same as tabs do in firefox; show open tabs as placeholders until activated, and only then load content and reconnect.

                  • TAB HISTORY Restore Multiple Closed Tabs

                    Add a checkbox next to each closed tab history item, all multiple selection. Default should be unchecked. Easier way to recover a session of multiple tabs when session runs out of memory and a re-open of SSMS doesn't restore any or all tabs.

                      • Keep pinned status

                        In SSMS 2016 you can now Pin tabs. When you close and re-open SSMS, it would be good if Tab History could remember, and restore, the pin status for each of the tabs as they are being restored.

                          I missing the information for the login name and session id in the tab history for open files. So, that I can easily identifier with connection uses which login. Also session id is useful as you can see otherwise only in the status bar of your current opened query.

                              When optimizing a query its good the have the queryresults to different resulttabs just like other vendors do. That way you can easily look at a version of the query that ran better/worse. Several others have this already and it would be a great completent to your excellent SQL Prompt.

                                When saving and opening tab windows, it would be great if it remembered each tab's window panel. For example, I have SMSS open on a large high resolution monitor. Within SMSS, I have two windows panels opens open, the first panel with 3 tabs and the second panel with 4 tabs, so that I can simultaneously view and compare the results of two queries side-by-side. I then close SMSS saving all the tabs. When I reopen SMSS, all the tabs are correctly opened. However, instead of the tabs opening in their original two panels, all the tabs are now open…

                                  • Tab Groups

                                    Add the ability to define groups of tabs that are used regularly for different jobs. For instance--there is a group of scripts I use for month end processing and a completely different set of scripts I typically have open for daily processing. Monthly statement preparation and troubleshooting comprise another set of scripts. I'd like to be able to name groups of tabs and retrieve them based on that named grouping, while still being able to go back to what I was doing before the "interruption" that caused me to need a different set of tabs open.

                                      You could create a way that we can put a 'description' on the top of the script we are typing on the query window, so that when we move the mouse up to the tab title for unsaved scripts, a hint with this description will be shown instead of the defultt SSMS hit 'SQLSqueryX.sql - server.database.....'

                                      • Ability to delete based on filter in tab history

                                        I love the Tab Magic tool, but I'm finding that it is saving a lot of old tabs where I had to provide a password to a script. For security purposes, I need to clear these out on a regular basis, so I don't have a secure account compromised.

                                        It would be nice to have the ability to filter bases on a phrase (such as Password) and then delete only those tabs. That way, I can keep the rest while still being secure

                                        • Restoring tabs based on SSMS version

                                          I had 2 instances of SSMS open, one was 2008R2 the other 2012.
                                          Each had 4 different tabs open.

                                          I closed both of the SSMS down, and then restarted, 2008R2 first then 2012.

                                          All 8 tabs reopened in the first (2008R2) SSMS.

                                          No tabs were restored in the 2012 SSMS.

                                          OK, this is a weird scenario, but wondered if SQL Prompt could remember tabs based on SSMS.

                                          Annoyingly though, if I had 2 SSMS 2008R2 open each with 4 tabs, then I would expect all 8 to appear in the first invocation of SSMS.
