Good news (I hope)!
I was finally able to make progress on this. On the machine with the fix, I was able to open a diagram created by SSMS 17.9.1 (on a different machine). The same diagram opened with 18.3.1 resulted in a crash.
I’ll do more testing in the next few days and go over all the comments on this page to make sure I capture all the scenarios and make sure they are really fixed.
It’s looking good, I really hope… :)
MS Team : Everytime the tooling group has tried to remove diagrams, it always end up in geeks in pitches and forks!! (You shoulda learnt that by now :))
Yes, might be ancient... But as you have seen from the reactions, it is widely used, and there is no alternative.... Maybe time for you to think if it could be developed anew?
