  3. It would be great to be able to group databases into custom folders. This is very useful when you have a lot of databases and many of them are logically related (like ReportServer and ReportServerTempDb)

  5. To look for and update dbFS requires internet access. Corporates often demand use of a proxy with login to open a path to the internet. I suggest that dbFS could at least present the login dialog box, and possibly remember my credentials for me when it strikes an internet proxy. This would allow the check for updates to work. Thanks

  6. Is it possible to add the coloring for NULL values in results grid, like SSMS has (yellow, or customizable in options). It is much easier to spot null values that way.

  7. Per your response "Unfortunately, Query Builder does not support CTE yet."

    You added support for CTE's to the application, but left it out of the query builder. So, the result is even though there is support now for CTE's, you still can't fully use it.

    Can you you just add the WITH statement to the query builder along with the other (SELECT, DELETE, etc....) keywords it supports?
    Seems like it would be a quick, simple, change.

  8. The Find and Replace defaults to a scope of "All Open Documents", which is quite irritating and potentially dangerous when Replacing. This causes a jump to a different open document and is an unnecessary distraction. A safer and more reasonable default would be "Current Document", as most of the time I am interested in finding something in the current document. Very rarely am I interested in finding text in all other open documents (Object Finder is a better tool for that kind of thing) and would only want to Replace in All Open Documents in very controlled circumstances.

  9. Currently I always have to switch to SSMS to modify a table that is referenced by foreign key constraints, because I get errors that the table can't be rebuild.
    Would be fine to get the same (or better) possibilities as in SSMS.

  10. Since V.6.0.563 in the diagram fonctionnality, the Container's title and the stamp's text color are white, resulting in very hard to read titles for the containers and impossible text to read in stamps.

  11. We store most of our database structure right in the database (field descriptions and FKs are pretty self-explanatory), so we don't have to make separate documents with diagrams. It would be nice to have an option to load existing MS SQL diagrams to your diagram editor. And save them back in the MS SQL diagrams format.

  12. I'm mooching this off of SqlRefactorStudio for SSMS, but since I'm really loving my dbForge Studio experience ... as T-SQL proficiency increases across my company, even our accountants are diving straight into SQL coding. They (and therefore I) have an inherent love of highlighting cells in Excel and seeing a number of common math done on the selected region such as SUM, MAX, MIN, and AVERAGE.

    SQL Refactor Studio (for SSMS) has this remarkable ability to highlight cells in the result set and display the math dynamically in the status bar. dbForge Studio in all its magnificence doesn't have this…

  13. Can the database diagram process allow us to drag a table onto the canvas and dbForge pulls in all the tables that have a foreign key relationship to it?
    It would be nice when studying a new database if we can drop a table on the canvas and get an idea what other tables are related to the one we dropped.

  15. 1) Create snapshots into just loose files (organised into folders by object type); no snapshot file, just the scripts in their folders. Also be able to compare to these loose snapshots. (May be include the option to zip the folder structure into a single file if the user wants single file snapshot). The loose files really enables any source control that the user chooses, and makes it far easier for doing diffs.

  16. Recreating tables with data refill in some cases throw errors.
    Please creat constraints with nocheck option first, and check it after if needed. Some ugly databases realy need this.

  17. Standard shortcut in visual studio/ssms missing. LineDelete.
    I currently map to shift+delete and it will delete the entire line the cursor is one. However, I cannot find a corresponding command to map in DbForge Studio

  19. Sorry for my english. There is a proposal to add a group by the schemes so as not to squander the entire list of tables / views / procedures.
