  4. Shortcut Ctrl +Alt+o is in conflict with windows Alt+o . So you can't get the Polish letter 'ó' what is annoying when try to comment your code in Polish not only because the letter, but especially because jumping out of your current context. Suggestion: option for you own definition of the short cut.

  5. When "show comments" is selected, both table descriptions and the names of relationship lines are displayed. The relationship names are not comments, and mostly clutter up an otherwise clear and concise diagram. Show comments should only show table "comments"; a separate button/option is needed to display relationship names for those who want to see them (I do not).

  6. Everytime I start dbForge Studio Express I get an advertisement about Cyber Monday discount. Don't get me wrong: I love the discount, but I don't need to see the ad every time I started dbForge Studio. More importantly: the advertisement interferes with other programs, because it shows after a while when I switched to another program. It'd like to see the ad only in dbForge Express and an option added called 'Do not show again'.

  7. From a SSMS Query window execute a statement like:
    CREATE TABLE #tempAllBin (ID Int);
    Then, in your query designed, browse to the TempDB and locate the new temp table. It will have a name like: "#tempAllBins________________________________________________________________________________________________________000000090BC2".
    Select this table name and drag it into the query designer window in your tool. - The length of the table name makes it impossible to view the column names in the column window, as well as a number of other complcations arising from the length of that table name. I see no way to assign a SHORTER ALIAS Name in your query designer…

    Data Viewer stops displaying anything in a day after being started. You will need to restart the application so it starts working again.

  10. When using the "Truncate Table" feature on a table which has an active table lock, dbForge completely freezes up and ultimately crashes. The app should "gracefully wait" rather than crash.

    Could you please specify what product version you are using?

    Please also provide us a screenshot of any possible error and perform the following:
    1. Select ‘Tools → Options…’ from the main menu. The ‘Options’ window opens.
    2. Navigate to the ‘Environment → Output’ branch.
    3. Select the ‘Write queries sent by the program to the SQL Log’ and ‘Log application errors’ options.
    4. Unselect the ‘Delete application log after closing’ option. Click ‘OK’.
    5. Reproduce the issue and send us the *.log file with the latest date from the folder:
    SystemDrive\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\Devart\dbForge Studio for SQL Server\

  11. In Delphi if you use the Devart SQL server components, dbForge studio is launched automatically. There is a bug if you close Delphi, studio hangs and is no longer usable.

    Could you please let us know what version of dbForge Studio for SQL Server you are using?

  12. 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 [].

  13. The MDI component used has always been problematic. For a time it would regularly crash, but this was eventually fixed. However, I can't help but to notice how sluggish it is when the monitor is greater than 1280x1024 or if you the tabs are split. Some kind of improvement in performance would be desirable.

  17. 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…

  18. I click "New Data Comparison" (or "New Schema Comparison"), then ALT-W to open the "Database Connection Properties" dialog, then TAB to get into the "Server" input box. Once there, I type a part of the name of the server and the list of available servers works nicely!

    It seems that I must use down DOWN ARROW to select the server from the list and press ENTER before I can get out.

    However, if I type the entire server name, I can't get out of that box! Pressing TAB or ENTER does nothing.

  19. 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.

  20. When I click the header of DBForge and start dragging, the window minimizes. When I'm dragging it to another monitor, I must then maximize the window. Please leave the window size where it is set.
