Multiple SSMS Instances issue

Postby cokert » Wed Jun 23, 2010 9:51 pm

I launched 2 instances of SSMS just now and Source Control is disabled in second instance.

That's an acceptable limitation for a v1.0 product IMO, but what I found annoying is this. I closed the original instance so that the second instance with SSC disabled was now the only instance. I couldn't find any way to get it to enable itself in the second instance, which was now the only instance. I ended up closing this instance as well and launching SSMS a third time.

Its not a huge problem by any means, but definitely what I would consider an annoyance and usability issue as its not clearly indicated that you won't be able to use SSC in that instance. The dialog is worded in such a way that made me think SSC would become available after closing the other instance, which it didn't.

For the future, I would like to be able to use multiple instances of SSC, though. I often run multiple instances of SSMS connected to different databases on different monitors. Not having SSC in those other instances will definitely be annoying.

Just found this.

Is there some way to search uservoice? Would seem like an obvious thing to have, but I couldn't find a way to do it.

You can search UserVoice by typing in the 'Suggest a new feature or enhancement'. It searches as you type, in order to try and reduce the number of duplicate entries. I agree it's not the most obvious behaviour!
