When using the Entity Data Model Designer for Entity Framework, please allow the drag & drop of tables & stored procedures from the Server Explorer to the design surface, as LINQ to SQL does for the DBML designer.

To be honest, in VS2010, this is the biggest thing that is keeping me from using Entity Framework. LINQ to SQL just makes this part so darn easy, it's hard to use anything else.

Thank you for filing this bug. We have been working on implementing this functionality, but the amount of work involved in making it both work correctly and be performant has meant that this feature will not make it into Visual Studio 2010, but rather into a future release.

Thanks for reporting this issue. We are routing this suggestion to the product unit who works on that specific feature area. The team will review this suggestion and make a decision on whether they will fix it or not for the next release.

Thank you,
Visual Studio Product Team
