SSDT Schema Compare identifies differences between source and target. Currently there is no "De-select All" option for Action. It'd be great if there could be "Select All"/"De-select All" button for Action.

So it's been 2+ years, "not a high priority item" must mean no. Hey MS, thanks for listening.

I understand how you could consider this a low priority,but edit/select all is a common Microsoft interface feature and when it is missing from the menu of any Microsoft application it created frustration and causes us to look for other options.

Hi Bill,

You are correct, the right-click option to include and exclude all makes sense. Although it was not too obvious to me.

Thank you for the letting me know and for the follow up.

Hi Julie, thanks for the feedback and your suggestion. We will certainly consider this for a future release, although this will not be a high priority item. You may not be aware that you can right-click on a folder in the grid (which, depending on your grouping setting, might be an object type, schema or action type), and include all or exclude all the actions in that folder. While it would be good to also have the option to select/deselect all grid content, operating on a folder gets you most of the utility with often only a few more mouse clicks.
I hope this helps, and thanks again for your input.
