Multi-Monitor Support in SQl Server Management Studio 2008

Did you notice that there are a lot of "little" things that were improved in SQL Server 2008? One of those was done by one of my favorite developers and deals with multi-monitor support. In previous versions of SQL Server Management Studio you could open the tool in multi-monitor and arrange the panes onto mulitple monitors. But when you disconnected the second monitory (as is often done with a laptop) you would "lose" the panes that were moved - SSMS just wasn't aware of those multiple monitors. Vlad spent a lot of time making that not true.SSMS is much better about being aware of the other monitors.

Sure, there's more to do in this area. We'll keep improving that feature, but I wanted you to know that sometimes little things take a lot of work - and aren't always noticed.

 Thanks, Vlad!

    I didn't even realise that you could do this and I've been working with SQL Server for many years :-)
