Does anybody have the same problem with new SSMS 18.0?

I have opened more tabs with some code inside. When switching between tabs the window (code inside the window) is rendered slow and the code is mostly overlaped with a code from previous tab. See image for example:

I wonder whether it's just mine or general bug? Where would you recommend me to report this?

    But it comes only with SSMS 18.0. No previous versions or other apps appears to have such behavior.

  • I'm also on Win10, Fujitsu Lifebook U745. SSMS 17.9 is completely fine.
