Multiple Line Comments in SQL Source Control

Another complaint that I made in Part 2 of my previous series on Red-Gate’s SQL Source Control tool was that the textbox to enter your check-in comments was only a single-line box.  I wished it had a multi-line comment area for check-in because I like to be more explicit and informative than the average bear.  Well, I don’t know when it happened but I just noticed today that it’s in there.  You can drag down the resize bar on the screen to make the comment box larger.

Multi-Line Comment

Maybe it was in there from the actual PROD release of the version with Vault integration, or maybe I just picked it up with a recent update.  I don’t know, but I’m glad it’s there.  Thanks!

EDIT: Fixed layout errors and picture size.
