Somehow the SSMS integration getting worser and worser every few versions.
One or two years ago I could clicking onto a plan in SSMS, open it in the plan explorer, modifiying my query in SSMS, getting a new plan and - when I opend this second version in the Plan Explorer - it would be correctly added as new version to the original plan (making it easier to compare them).
Then suddendly this did not work longer and the plugin opened always a new tmp-file in the Plan Explorer, floating it with several versions of the plan in multiple child windows.
And now - since the upgrade to 11.3 a few days ago - it always opens a new Plan Explorer instance, flooding my task bar and memory...
Is there any chance to get the original behavior back (and no, I don't always want to use the Plan Explorer as Editor and write / optimize my statments there)?
PS: I'm using SSMS 2017
