Metadata stops working after auto-open of sql-files

JoelgJoelg Posts: 3 New member
When opening management studio, previously opened files are automatically opened. 
Since a couple of weeks, these files will contain a lot of squiggly red lines. Existing objects are not recognized, nor hoverable. I see "invalid object name [existing table name]" for tables that exist.
refreshing cache (ctrl+shift+d) does nothing, it also is extremely fast, usually takes a couple of seconds.

If i save the file, close it and re-open it, the redgate cache starts working.

    Hi, 

    I'm sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulty with SQL Prompt.

    Please could you confirm which version of SQL Prompt and Management Studio you are using? 

    Thanks,

  • Hi @Joelg,

    The squiggly red lines are actually from SSMS rather than SQL Prompt. 

    I'll reach out shortly by email so that we can take a deeper look at the issue for you.
    Kind regards
