  1. I am using dbForge Studio 2019 Express. I can select text vertically but I can not edit it. In other editors, when I edit text, all rows are updated.

    I suggest to copy this feature of Notepad ++ or SQL Server Management Studio.

  2. Azure doesn't support linked servers. It has an external data source feature instead. SSMS allows creation of a template. It would be great if dbForge Studio supported the same but with a wizard that would allow connection of an excel spreadsheet OR another Azure database on the same Azure elastic server.

  3. A new preference to indicate whether the New Sql tab should to the furthermost right or left. Sometimes when you're working things out, you want to see the tabs in the progression of when you built in or just to know that the latest work is way to the right or left

  4. Would like to have a filter condition in the Data Grid. Because:
    1. We have about anywhere from 25+ to 200+ Column in a Table.
    2. We have to navigate to the required column and then select the filter condition or write the SQL Statement.
    3. But if we have something like below, the user can type the column name and provide the condition for the filter.
    4. The name of the column is auto-populated as well.

  5. We are having 6 Databases for each Environment like Dev or QA or UAT or Prod. Also due to cost control, the customer wants to have the Dev, QA & UAT environment on the same Server.
    I have access to all the Environments.
    When I want to with UAT environment, I want to see only the 6 Databases that are associated with the UAT Environment. Currently it shows access to all the Databases.
    I am the DBA and I want to make each connection with Name like UAT and only have 6 Databases selected.
    Please add this feature.

  6. Ability to expand Group By to the same columns that are in the Select statement.
    When I hit tab after entering Group BY, I get the same columns listed as the ones for the Select. So I don't have to enter them manually

  7. Using ctrl [] to go to the beginning or end of a brace or parenthesis block has never worked for me even after upgrading SSMS multiple times over the years.

    I would like SQL Complete to have its own implementation to moving between beginning and end of brace or parenthesis.

  12. Opening windows takes much time.
    I believe the most often used features must work as fast as possible to provide the best experience (including not only processing but opening windows).
    See how long it takes to open "New Data Comparison" and moving through tabs "Source and Target", "Options", "Mapping".
    The app itself opens slowly as well opening "dcomp"-files.

  13. I have to generator a column based on another tables column value . Currently python generator can work with same table columns only. It will be great if we can access other table column also.

  15. Write light-weight launcher for windows explorer integration. Now on double-click on .sql file starts whole huge dbForge executable, even if one copy of the .exe is active.

  16. Please implement simple work with regular expressions. For instance it is impossible now to find all words that start from single quote character and replace them to double quote.

  17. Please implement. Support of simple shortcuts for work with lines (that not implemented as well) like in notepad++ or Visual Studio or MSSMS. I mean such shortcuts and features as : Ctrl+D - duplicate line, Ctrl+L - remove line, Ctrl+J - join lines etc.

  18. I customize the tool bar and arrange them how I want them and the reset on their own if I do anything like execute a query, move to another tab and move back, etc. They should lock in place and be the same on each query window.

  19. I changed the grid to update a table, but the update did not use the primary key of the selected row and updated thousands of rows! My expectation is that the PK of the selected "update" table would be used to update one row. This is a terrible bug and makes the update feature unusable when using a join.

  20. It is sometimes important to set triggers order when there are several triggers for a single table, UPDATE event, for example.

    There is a command which performs this:
    EXEC spsettriggerorder @triggername=N'[dbo].[tskTask_Validate]', @order=N'First', @stmttype=N'UPDATE'

    But I wish I had a visualized tool for this task and more control than a simple 'First' / 'Last' option.

    Thank you
