Activate object definition box with keyboard shortcut

Hi,

I want to activate the object definition box with a keyboard shortcut based on cursor position in the SSMS query editor window -- is this possible? 

The only way I know how to activate is on mouse-over.

I've looked at the below docs and can't find anything.

Thanks,
Tim

    Hi @asaaa

    Thanks for reaching out to us regarding this.

    Unfortunately it isn't currently possible to utilize a keyboard shortcut to bring up the object definition box, as you said, only mouse over will activate it. 

    I appreciate this would be useful functionality for you and so encourage you to log a feature request for this on our SQL Prompt UserVoice page: https://redgate.uservoice.com/forums/94413-sql-prompt.  This way our development team will have visibility of it, and can consider it in future versions of SQL Prompt. 
    Kind regards
