Thank you for taking time to post this issue!
I can confirm that Design option in SSMS Object Explorer is not available for temporal (system-versioned) tables.
Unfortunately, we do not plan to include a fix for this issue in the upcoming release.
We might include it as an improvement in a future release, though.
How important for you is to have this option available for temporal tables?Travis Kale commented
Considering so many informational items can be discovered through the design tab, this needs fixed. I don't always use the design window to alter the table, I may want to look at the description/extended properties of a column. I don't want to have to write a query to do this.Travis Kale supported this idea ·
