  1. Currently when you attempt to open a tab from tab history and there are no other tabs currently loaded in SSMS the attempt from tab history freezes SSMS and causes it to crash. A feature that made that not happen would be good.

  2. If a table variable or temp table has an identity field, I do not think this field should show up in the auto generated insert into/values list:

    DECLARE @Table TABLE (TableId INT IDENTITY(1,1), Data VARCHAR(100);

    INSERT INTO @Table
    ( [TableId] -- This field show not show up by default in the insert list
    , [Data] )
    VALUES ( 0 -- TableId - int -> This field show not show up by default in the insert values list
    , '' -- Data - varchar(100)
    )

    -- Temp Table
    CREATE TABLE #Temp (TableId INT IDENTITY(1,1), Data1);

    INSERT INTO [#Temp] ([TableId],
    [Data1]) VALUES…

  3. I love Tab Magic (or Tab History), but the with the latest version it also shows the tabs that are currently open. I would like an option to ignore currently open tabs. I can search those tabs right in SSMS, I need Tab History just for ones I've already closed.

  4. Please add an option to ignore tabs over a certain number of connections.

    It would avoid long waits when SSMS starts if in the previous session I forget to close a one-time query against hundreds of servers.

    In its current implementation, SQL Prompt can crash SSMS before the connections complete.

  6. Reopening tabs is a great feature. HOWEVER, to have all the tabs sit there saying "not connected" means I have to manually reconnect to every one of them. Quel pain! Being in the middle of a time-crunch project with 12 tabs sitting there all disconnected motivated this request...

    Please present the Tab Magic overlay and give us:
    1. the option to "connect to last connected server with last-used credentials" for selected tabs.
    2. the option to choose another server from the list (it's OK if the connect dialog pops up once the overlay is dismissed).
    3. the option to remove…

  7. What happened to the options settings for Tab Magic? I rarely, if ever, want the last tab opened and would like to be able to stop it from doing so every time I start an instance of SSMS

    We’ve released SQL Prompt 6 which includes the tab magic options.

  8. Do not hijack CTRL-T in Tab Magic. I routinely use this to direct query output to Text. I use this in concert with CTRL-D, for output to Grid.
    Perhaps when options for Tab Magic are provided, we will be able to turn off this feature.

  9. I would like a config open so that the dropdown of queries starts at OPEN QUERIES not all queries

    also, I would like it when my mouse hovers over the magic tab button for it to just expand... the extra click makes it less magic

  10. Hi,

    Thanks for your last changes!

    In addition, I have sometime Long file names where only looking on their Name tail or according to their full path, I can decide which one is the relevant.
    Could you add in Query History a Tool Tip when hovering above the File Name with Full Name, Path, Last Closed, Last Connection details, etc.?

  11. It would be great to be able to bulk delete old or unneeded tabs from Tab History. Right now, I have to delete it one by one which is an endless task.

  12. Hi,

    First, I like the new design, and thank you for make it available for SSMS 2012.
    I have 2 problems:
    1. I missing the Option button (I don't wont it to open recently closed queries on start-up).
    2. When I'm searching for term in the Query History dialog, and hovering above one of the files in the left pane, its query text in the preview pane jumps to the somewhere in the file and move a bit to the left. I assumes it suppose to jump to the first match, but, it is not always even in the frame.…

    We’ve released SQL Prompt 6 which includes a fix for these.

  13. The VS-based "tool" is significantly less usable than SS2008R2. Tab Magic will significantly ease the pain of having to work with tabs in the limited manner SSMS2012 inflicts upon us, especially those of us livid over the loss of the MDI-mode!

  14. When loading management studio it would be great if tab magic could get a list of the required connections before the tabs are loaded and test each one silently to see if a connection would be possible (i.e. host is available) If the host is available then prompt for login once per host, if host is not available simply load the tab as not connected.

    This would make the experience much nicer as at the moment if I had say 15 tabs open to a host that I am no able to connect to (I work on multiple sites) I…

    SQL Prompt 6.1.0.71 will try a silent background connection before getting SSMS to connect the query.

  15. When I click on 'Recently Closed Tabs' I get a window showing 20-ish closed tabs and their contents. If I resize the window, it fills with more, so I know that further history can be accessed.

    I understand that the best way to find 'old' queries is to type in the search box to try and filter the history, but sometimes (and it is only sometimes) I just want to scroll down the history and see all the closed tabs. Not saying all the history should be loaded - I guess that would take a lot of memory, but it…
