Doug Holland (a C# MVP) has opened two work items in Connect. The first one is about being able to share settings between VS and SSMS for those of us who do both DBA and developer work. You shouldn’t have to specify font, color, or tab settings twice, or at least you should be able to import settings. The second one is a request to put the functionality in the Fault Retry Provider sample into SQL Server and ADO.NET. I think that is a wonderful idea. I’ve voted for both items, and added a comment to the second one. I encourage you all to take a look at these and vote if you agree. Thanks!
SSMS settings import / export.
