UI Request: Make the “Active Documents” part of the CTRL+TAB dialog
Future: Hopefully at least 2-3 times the current width allocated
Reason: As you can tell from the screen capture above – at its current
width, it’s almost useless. If you have a bunch of scripts all opened from
the same path, there’s nothing to distinguish between one and the other
– so there’s no benefit to using the CTRL+Tab dialog.
Someone once told me that they did it this size to be consistent with SSMS.
Personally I think that’s a dumb reason not to improve upon the
If you do insist on making it the same as SSMS, here’s a screen capture of
basically the same thing in SSMS:
Notice that it at least shows the filenames without the path. That’s
SLIGHTLY better only because I can almost tell the difference if the first n
characters of the filename happen to be different – but as you can see
from this screen capture – the distinguishing part is at the end of the
file name – not the beginning.
What I really want: Make the dialog as wide as the screen resolution allows to
display the full filename with path.
