Running out of real estate in your code window? Give it the full screen to play with (well, almost all of it...)

ALT + SHIFT + RETURN

(The same again to return to "normal")

Oh, bother. My response here didn't survive the migration in one piece. And when I click on edit I get an error page.

So... the answer should be "ALT" + "SHIFT" + "RETURN". (I had wrapped it in the keyboard tag to make it look like yer actual keys...)

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
