  1. Prior to the major code change of SQL Studio, when a new window was opened, it always open to the right of the current window. Now, for that past few versions, a new opened window always opens to the right of the Start Page window.

    Please restore the open window behavior to place new windows to the top of the Most Recently Used (MRU) window stack. This would be a quality of life improvement, since right now I open a window, then I have to manually move it to where I want it to be.

  4. The "Add related tables"-function (same as in SSMS) is very useful when creating a database diagram from an old database.

  5. llow to group/organize Functions or Stored Procedures within folders created by the user. This way, it is possible to group by functionality.
    Over time these kind of objects pile up and become increasely difficult to manage.

  6. When a value is changed in the Data Editor, the Data Editor logic compares the value with the existing value and makes a decision whether to update the existing value based on whether the new value is considered different. Currently, this equality comparison is case insensitive, which is a bug. It must be case sensitive. SSMS will update data based upon consideration for case sensitivity, but not the Data Editor.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. Please add a filter to Object Search results like 'Display distinct names of objects only' (or similar),. That will help with searching objects (tables/views) that contain certain data, but not data itself. Say when I search for string 'rufhweirfi' in my a database, it returns me 4000+ rows from 58 tables, but I need only names of objects that contain such data. That would help with searching pairs master-detail in database that has no relationships for tables.

  17. Add an option to the Schema Compare feature to ignore CLR objects(CLR Type, CLR Procedure, CLR Function, Aggregate Function).

    Note that the option shouldn't affect usual objects (Function, Procedure, User data type, User table type).

  18. I would like to see an option on tab context menu. Often I need to duplicate (clone) my query. So another useful option in context menu when clicking on Query Tab would be "Duplicate query" or something like that.

  19. Hi. I'm currently evaluating studio for sql server. OK, i'm primarily interested in schema and data comparison but evaluating the whole studio product. Here's a couple of things which i think would be useful additions/modifications to the UI of the product(s) (schema and data comparison).

    1. The "recent files" section. I think it would be better if there was a "favorites" section above "recent files" and the user was able to choose whether he wishes to have the "recent files", "favorites" or both sections shown. Also, comparison projects could have an editable title so in the "favorites" section, one could see…
