That is all pretty good stuff, and most, I didn't know.
I still use SQL Query Analyzer as my primary editing tool, and will continue to do so. I have even installed it to servers that have never seen SQL Server 2000. It's main limitation is it's inability to "Edit" (from the menu) an existing object, and that's not a real show stopper.
The functionality of the SSMS SQL editor has gone the wrong way in my opinion.
Annoyance #1: Double-click on a quoted or bracketed word, and the selection includes the quotes or brackets.
Annoyance #2: Ctrl-Left, Ctrl-Right movements don't jump a block of special characters (--), but hops them one by one.
If this is the "Old dog /New trick' thing, then so be it, but it's a great editor, and 'Start>>Run>>isqlw' is pretty firmly embedded in my memory. (:
