Sql Prompt doesn't recognize alias

I'm attempting to write a SPROC, but SQL Prompt has gone from making it 100% easier to 100% more frustrating. I'm trying to write a simple SELECT statement, nothing too fancy, but SQL Prompt's suggestions have totally gone off the rails. I've got a table with an alias defined:


But when I start typing that alias no table suggestions appear at all:

(* Alias circled since the suggestion window hides it)

I've tried refreshing suggestions via CTRL+Shift+D, I've tried closing and reopening SSMS, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling SQL Prompt, all to no avail. It has got to the point where turning off SQL Prompt now enhances my development experience instead of the opposite. Help!

    Hi Ger,

    Which version of SQL Prompt are you currently using? If you're not on 7.2.1 could you try upgrading to see that helps.

    If you're still having problems on the latest version could you forward the script you're having issues with to me (aaron.law@red-gate.com) and I'll look into it for you.
