SSMS Crash when dragging table from Object explorer into new query window
Have just installed this version v18.1 and everytime I drag a table from Object explorer into new query window SSMS crashes, I have to kill it.
I have no add-ins installed, have rebooted since installing.
O/s Win 10 15063.1387
Issue has been identified and a fix is being made. It will be rolled out with the next update of SSMS 18.
Mr Matteo - care to state when the fix will be out ?
BTW, hope every follows the advice on NDM on Jun 27th below. ESC will save you a SSMS kill and restart!
Glad to hear a fix in on the way! Force of habit dragging tables into the query window has crashed me too many times to count.

I have also experienced this issue. Looks like my typing skills are going to be tested ;-)

Agree. Extremely annoying issue. Hope Microsoft fix it quick.
SSMS usage becomes more irritating

@MatteoTaveggia, please give an ETA for the next version that will have this bug fixed.
I am going back to 17.9.1 at least it is more stable

Any estimate on when the fix will drop? Thanks
Same issue. Please note that if you hit ESC a couple of times the error message will disappear, still can't drag and drop but at least no restart required,
Having the same issue. Very annoying bug
Please fix this. How did this get past the testers?
Aaaah so it's a known problem, but not urgent enough to fix?...wish I hadn't updated now....back to version 17 for me then. My colleague never updates her system, think I should use the same policy
11 days since this issue was acknowledged in this thread by the Product Manager. What's the ETA for the fix to be rolled out?

Just update SSMS and found out about this issue, is a real problem, this does not encourage me to update my Microsoft products.
Also, if this was a known issue, why keep it available for update?
Same issue. Extremely annoying to be used to dragging/dropping long/complex table names into query window, just for SSMS to continually crash now... When will this be fixed?
I am also getting the same error while dragging. To resolve it, we need to kill the ssms using task manager and reload the ssms.
I wonder how such a basic bug has not been identified during the testing or you just complete the development and publish to the internet and are we the real testers?

18.0 has a launch issue... That was fixed with 18.1. 18.1 has this bug. Very annoying! Stop updating SSMS so frequently! Slow down and do more testing. We don't need these nonstop upgrades. I'm directing users back to 17.9.1. I'm sure there's a bug there too.

Any chance of feedback on timescales or a hotfix? Using this feature is a habit that is hard to break during development, and restarting is a becoming a real drag.

This is a serious bug that has cost me several long-running queries to cancel in other tabs. Any chance of a "v18.1.1" hotfix? Most people, myself included, drag/drop objects out of habit, so waiting 2 months for v18.2 is a terrible solution vs. reinstalling v18.0.
v18.1 should be pulled in favor of v18.0.
Having the same issue. Had to uninstall and reinstall 18.0 to continue
