Add comment/description to db objects (tables,views,sprocs)

Can I add a comment or description to db objects with the help of any of the Redgate tools? A comment that should be easy to find later, for example just by clicking / hovering the object, and be searchable.

In SQL Search there's a column "Detail" that might be "it". But where does the info for that come from?

I imagine a simple tool to expose some standardized Extended property some way.

    You can use SQLDoc to do this or use the stored procs to manipulate the extended properties. SQL Prompt does display extended properties when you hover on columns/tables etc

    Ah, yea, just found the SQL doc nice feature to "edit" the MS_Description extended property. Very nice! But I do not get SQL Prompt to display extended properties when hovering?
