Resizing prompt window can make prompt unuseable

In the office I have a large screen oriented in portrait format so I resized the prompt suggestion window to see more suggestions at one time. Now I'm away from the office for a few days and must settle for the laptop screen which has vastly less vertical space and the suggestion box extends past the bottom of the screen where suggestions can't be seen. There seems to be no way to resize the suggestion box since the handles are beyond the bottom of the screen. Restarting VS/SSMS or rebooting doesn't help.

    Hi rbielaws,

    We've got some plans in the future to improve the suggestions list design which will fix this.

    A workaround for now is to delete the file:
    %localappdata%Red GateSQL Prompt 7RedGate_SQLPrompt_CommonUI_Options_UIOptions.xml
    Which will reset your settings back to the defaults. Alternatively, edit the file and change the <CandidateListHeight> variable.
