    Hey Now Zain;

    It's funny how these tips are almost timeless & good for so many years. Not sure if you ever blogged about the one below:

    Another one that is stellar similar to this is the DataTip.  Example  Tools -> Options -> Fonts and Colors -> Show settings for.  From there, select "DataTip." from the dropdown list.  I like this font large too since when I'm trying to view the value of the variable it's not 9pt.

    Thank again;
