Zoom SSIS Package Design Surface in BIDS in Denali CTP1 – Usability Enhancements in BIDS-SSIS in SQL Server code-named Denali – Part 1

SSIS in Denali comes with a whole bunch of new and exciting features both from an arthitectural/development standpoint and also from a usability standpoint. Here is a really cool feature introduced in Denali Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS) for SSIS which allows us to Zoom only the Package Design Surface which will help in navigating easily in the designer especially while developing some really huge packages.
Below is a screenshot of a sample package in the normal 100% zoom mode (default).
Now we can use the slider located on the bottom right corner of the designer surface to zoom the design surface to see larger size images of various tasks/components within the design surface as shown below.
Note that the Zooming is applied only to the design surface and not to any other area like Connection Managers tray, Solution Explorer etc.
There are lot more usability enhancements introduced in Denali which I will post in the coming days. So stay tuned!
