  1. 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)

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. Currently dbForge Source Control display all objects in database. It would be great to be able filter out objects monitored by Source Control based on schema name or other condition.

    Example:
    - Exclude all objects in tmp schema
    - Exclude all objects matching condition 'tmp%' or '%_bak'

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. When editing SQL text, would it be possible to change the default action of cut (CTRL-X), copy (CTRL-C) and paste (CTRL-V) to operate on the current line if no selection is visible? Every programming editor I've used do this as the default. An example use case: Cursor is in the middle of my current line and I want to delete the line. Current actions required are to press the HOME key (most times twice because the line is indented), hold down the SHIFT key and press the DOWN ARROW key, then press DELETE, or start typing with the new text.…

  13. In SSMS / Visual Studio you can select a box section / columns from multiple lines for editing using the <Alt> key (EG: Select area on a single line, press <Alt> and down / up arrow and you'll have those same columns then selected in other rows too).

    This allows for quickly replacing / editing data that recurs across multiple consecutive lines - It's proved a HUGE time-saver.

    I believe this is what was asked for here:
    https://devart.uservoice.com/forums/177009-dbforge-studio-for-sql-server/suggestions/14157501-column-mode

    and it would be great to have that added into Studio.

  14. Hi,

    I would like to suggest a new feature which will allow changing default export "options" for all exports to Excel/HTML format? I'm thinking about fonts, colors, alternating row colors etc.

    I don't like default coloring so I would like to change it for all exports I do from dbForge Studio. Now I have to change them every time, and it's tricky because I have to manually copy complex colors to dialog, select fonts.

    I was thinking that "Save template" would help me with this, but this saves whole data source too so I always get same data exported when…

  18. On the database diagram, add ability to create virtual relationships between tables in different databases. This would help in documenting the implied relationships between databases.

  19. The software is great at restoring query tabs from the last session. It would be good to be able to save the current session's query tabs (and sql content) as a workspace. This would simplify working on multiple projects.

  20. When a sql script is being edited and saved in same directory automated created *.design file. The *.design files in working directories is no good. I suggest to add ability set path for storing *.design files in separate directory. By default it can be temp directory.
