With the release of SP2 for SQL 2012, SQL Server Management Studio got a bug fix that results in a nice quality of life improvement. Since the initial release of SQL 2012, plain text in SSMS always showed up in teal, no matter what you set it to via the Tools –> Options –> Environment –> Fonts And Colors setting. This bug was filed in a Microsoft Connect item over two years ago. With SP2, it has finally been fixed. This isn’t a big deal, but it does make things easier on my tired old eyes.
