We are currently developing the next version of SQL Prompt and we would love your feedback.

SQL Prompt 6 includes the following new features and enhancements:

- SQL Tab Magic now works in SSMS 2012, with new features and a redesigned user interface
- Synonyms (including columns from a synonym’s base object) are now suggested by SQL Prompt
- CTRL + C now copies the contents of the object definition box
- All relevant tables are now suggested in a join clause, and we’ve added an option to swap the order of columns in the clause
- You can now customize SQL Prompt formatting to indent text using tab characters
- SQL Prompt formatting no longer uppercases XML functions
- You can now use $PASTE$ in SQL Prompt snippets to insert the contents of your clipboard into a query
- We’ve fixed some stability issues on Windows 8
- Data Explorer has been removed from the Experimental Features due to lack of interest

If you want to try out the latest build of SQL Prompt 6 you can download it from:
