Dear experts

I use intensive MS SQL Server management studio 2008. It is surprised why Microsoft developers can’t implement ordinary features … ¿

Look the picture. My problem is that every time I edit and execute T-SQL commands it get me half of the screen, then do mouse drag drop of slider down because I want to see more T-SQL code.

Is there a way to fix the result panes to use only 1/10 of screen size? I do not want to get result in other tab or in other screen/place which will force me to click to get back to the code. I need just to see result -
 Command(s) completed successfully
or the error message.

I'm afraid your answer is very correct ... :-( It defiantly look that the developers in MS have no idea about real tasks in real projects ...

Where can be send a suggestion to MS ?

Is there benefits to use other too - for example the one bult in Visual Studio 2008 ? What is your personal preferences for SQL Server tool?

On both my 2008 R2 and 2012 when I mouse to the border between the T-SQL and results window the cursor turns into a horizontal bar with up/down arrows.

When I click and hold, and drag the mouse, it allows me to resize both these windows in relation to each other.

When I execute T-SQL, it keeps the above sizing.

 It keep the sizing, but when you open a new WIndows it is again on half of the screen.
Of course, I also can resize the panel - but I do this ALL the time - approximate 100-200 times in a day. In EVERY day, because every day I work with SQL Server .

I'm with 30 '' LCD with 2560x1600, but with such rough software it is less useful ...

if your only concern is about running the sql, and seeing the result (ok, error), for non-SELECT queries, you could use sqlcmd command line for that, OR just write a quick/dirty "vb" application to do this ...
I know, not a "integrated" solution, but for 200-300 times a day, every day ...
