Tables don't show up in query editor

Hi,

I'm developing with sql server 2008 express. When I create a new table the table doesn't show up directly in the query window when I create a query with intellisence activated. Older tables are there but it takes al long time (often a day or so) until the newly created tables show up for intellisence in the query window.

I've tried to refresh the tables view and also gone to Edit/Intellisence/Refresh Local Cache, but still they don't show up until a long while later. I also restarted the service for sql server without result.

How can I make them available directly instead of hours later.

right-click on the Tables and Select Refresh, or hit Ctrl-shift+R, to refresh intellisense

Hi and thanks foir answer,

As I said above I've already tried both those options already, but that doesn't solve it.

apparrently this is somewhat of a 'feature'.  surprises me, though, that the refresh doesn't get it for you.  is that what you're saying?  see here:
