A real developer could fix this problem in a few minutes. For Microsoft, 4 years and it's still broken. Microsoft needs a new SQL Server Manageability team leader to help get everyday simple issues like this resolved, issues that thousands have to get annoyed with daily.

LOL. Only Microsoft wouldn't be able to fix this immediately.

Greetings from the SQL Server Manageability team.

Thanks for writing in to Microsoft. We greatly value your feedback.

However, given the work that would be involved in implementing this work, and triaging against our current set of deliverables, we do not think, we would be able to get to this in the near future.

Having said that, we value your suggestions, and would like to assure you that, we would keep these ideas in mind, when we do revisit this feature in the future.

Thanks again for providing feedback and making SQL Server the greatest Database server.

Using the keyboard or mouse, highlight the text you wish to delete and press the BACKSPACE key instead of the DELETE key.
