  1. The window selection dialogs have a Name and a Path column. You can resize the dialog to your heart's content, but it will not have any effect on the width of the Name. Which, if the window is displaying a DB object, will have the schema part of the name prepended. Which, if th. e schema part of the name is long enough to be useful, will cause the interesting part of the name to be truncated.

    Provide an affordance that will allow users to resize the width of the Name column in the window selection dialog. Alternatively, provide a…

  3. When I reformat the document it doesn't put Aliases, Table Names or Column Names in [] even though I have that option on.

    Formatting should enforce the rules I have in place. I want Table Names, Column Names, Aliases all enclosed in [].

  4. When I open an existing stored procedure or view with Modify menu item, dbForge studio formatting is automatically applied. Is there a way to prevent this?

  5. EDIT: Apparently this editor doesn't support any formatting?

    I want DISTINCT and TOP to line up with the first column not with SELECT.

    So this:
    SELECT
    DISTINCT
    TOP 100
    t.[TraineeName]

    would be

    SELECT
    DISTINCT
    TOP 100
    t.[TraineeName]

  6. If I have column names or table names like

    MyTabel, it should be able to split it apart at the capitalizations and tell me that Tabel is spelled incorrectly and offer suggestions on how to fix it.

    Same goes for Table Names, Stored Procedure Names, etc...

  7. I added new fields and moved them up, it gave me a warning of "The object requires rebuilding, this may result in the loss of some properties.". Is there a way to tell what properties those are or is it just an warning that might not even exist?

    This feels like a CYA warning message. If I'm going to lose something, it would be nice for me to know what it thinks I'm going to lose.

  8. In MS SSMS I can select rows and drag them in the grid to change their position. I would like to do the same with dbForge.

  10. In MS SSMS I can select multiple rows in a table definition and then do a Control-C to copy those definitions. I can then go to a different table (or even the same table) and paste the definitions in.

    I typically have 4 columns that are always on my tables (DateCreated, CreatedByID, UpdatedByID, and UtcTimestamp) and it's easier to just copy them from another table then to enter them in by hand every time I create a table.

  11. if you write part of a column name, intellisense gives you a list to chose from, but automatically selects the first row, so you can confirm the choice by pressing TAB. That works in WHERE, ON, GROUP BY, ORDER BY statement, but not in SELECT. I am quite sure that in one old Release this worked. not sure, why it does not anymore.
    Right now in SELECT you have to write part of the column name and then use cursor down to select the first item on the list, then press tab.

  12. It appears that I can't export the font and colors settings in Options -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors. This would be a great feature addition that would allow me to export my personal theme design and apply it again whenever I do an upgrade or install the software again.

  13. When we do an import for dbf file, the first file is ready to create a new table with the file name for the table's name. At the end, when the import is done, we can click on "Import more". We select a new dbf file but it tries to import in an existing table or the previous table name and a number at the end. It must always be the file name for the table name when we want to import to a new table.
    Thanks a lot!

  14. In SSMS, there is a feature called Registered servers, which allows for creation of groups of servers eg. Development, which contains sql server instances for all development servers.
    With this option, a user can execute the same script against all the servers in the group.
    This can be useful in a scenario such as if you need to execute a query against your database in each of your retail locations.
    I would like to see this feature implemented in dbForge Studio IDE.

  15. 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.

  18. If a DML query contains an error, the file is not saved. It is absurd to have to go into Notepad to save a file.

  19. Hi, we use a lot of json caluses in our db procedures e.g.:
    select
    *
    into
    #parcel_data
    from
    openjson(@parcelData, '$')
    with
    (
    "ParcelId" int '$.ParcelId',
    "ParcelTypeId" int '$.ParcelTypeId',
    "ShipmentId" int '$.ShipmentId',
    "BarCode" nvarchar(100) '$.BarCode'
    );
    Why don't You prepare such a helper in dbForge Studio ? It could be located on the level of "Generate script as" menu for each table for instance. To have the possibility to prepare our own plugins would be also a good idea.
