SSDT July Update: Lost Syntax Highlting in VS 2013 for sqlproj.


  • After Updating SSDT to Version 12.0.40706.0 the syntax highlighting in VS 2013 for sqlproj is lost. Only text is correctly highlighted in red. Are this known as bug? Exists a possibility to downgrade back to an older version of SSDT?

  • I had fixed my syntax highlighting problem by deleting following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0\FontAndColors\Cache. This clears the cache and my syntax highlighting for sql files is coming back ;-)
