More Fun With SSMS

Wayne Sheffield continues his SSMS tools and tips series.  Since our last look, he’s added a few more tips.  First, Wayne shows how to show and hide blocks of T-SQL using Outlining.  Then, he gets to something I find useful in SSMS:

From there, Wayne shows how to use bookmarks in SSMS, which is something I tend not to do.  Finally, you can see the SSMS web browser.
