I find it very annoying every time the popup appears when I don't really need it and I just want to move to the next word (which I always do using CTRL+Right).

I would like to move 'Switch to/from Column Picker' away from CTRL+Left and CTRL+Right, is that possible?

    Thanks for your post. You can do this, but it's not entirely elegant. If you go into C:\Users\%user%\AppData\Local\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 5 you should find a file called RedGate_SQLPrompt_CommonUI_Options_UIOptions.xml.

    In that file, you'll find the following strings:


    All you need do is change them to the following:


    The column picker itself still says that to enable it hit CTRL+Left etc, but it's actually Shift that operates the switching to and from.
