  1. Tab History

    Tab history grows considerable with tabs that you don't care about. How about a hot key combination so that when the tab is closed it does not add it to history. Example: While holding the ctrl key down I close a tab and this prevents it from being added to history.

    • SQL Prompt -> Tab History -> add datetime stamp column

      Currently it shows the filename and servername, but it would really help to have the datetime of when it was executed. Sorting the columns would be an added benefit as well.

      • Please add persistent flag to closed tab history

        I love the Closed Tab History, but now I find myself using this functionality to "keep" closed tabs and then need to prune away all of the closed tabs that are junk. The remove older doesn't quite do this for me. To make this easier, it would be nice to somehow add a flag to make some of the tabs in closed persist. I know this sounds like I'm wanting you to not delete files I throw into the recycle bin, but that is a little like what I'm wanting. The other alternative is to create another tab for "saved"…

        • Tab History -- Close window without adding to history

          I open allot of windows that I don't want to search thru when I am looking for a previous window I closed(select top 1000, ..........)
          It would be really nice if you could hold down the shift key when closing a window and it does not add it to history.

          • Make selected tab more responsive to mouseover

            When browsing tabs to reopen after clicking Tab History, the currently selected tab changes depending on which tab your mouse cursor is on. When hovering over the filenames (SQLQuery3.sql, etc) the selected tab is responsive and changes very quickly. However, when hovering over the server address and environment info on the right side, the selected tab is much less responsive, sometimes skipping tabs completely as I move the mouse up and down the list. And if you click on this side of the tab info, frequently the previous tab will be opened instead of the one you actually clicked on.

            • Recover XMLA queries as well

              Tab History is ideal for recovering SQL queries. When SSMS crashes, all .sql queries are nicely put back. However, any XMLA queries (and perhaps MDX and DAX as well) aren't recovered. It would be great if all types of queries could be recovered.

              • 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. 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

                        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.

                                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.

                                    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.

Also session id is useful as you can see otherwise only in the status bar of your current opened query.

                                      • Add "closed timestamp" to tabs on tab history

                                        It would be great to find out when a tab was closed on the tab history form.

                                        Thanks

                                        • Different resulttab for comparing queries

                                          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.
