Love the live update of descriptions to the DB - suggestion

Postby PDinCA » Thu Dec 11, 2008 12:09 am

Great job on the ease with which I can add extended properties in bulk - I can FINALLY see myself documenting the database!

In keeping with the concept of templates or datatypes, we have, like others, many "boilerplate" columns that are so similarly worded, and in many cases like the "who and when audit columns" are identical, would you add a "snippet library" (like SQL Prompt) so we can quickly get template wording into a column/table/etc and edit to specifics...? Failing that, can you give us a "clone from" dialog so we can copy from another similar artifact via an explorer tree or intelligent search-by-type (dropdowns) facility.

Thanks again and keep up the good work...

Many thanks - it's great to hear that you like the new property editor!

A "template" description library is an excellent suggestion - I have added it to the list of features we will look into next release.
