  2. 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.

  3. 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...

  4. 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]

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  10. 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).

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  14. Opening a saved or recent file (schema or data comparison) should not start comparing directly but instead open the "Edit comparison" dialog in the Mapping tab, just in case the user wishes to change the items being compared. When using slow connections between servers, this would be very helpful. If you feel may users would not like such a change, it could be made configurable in the application options (a "Don't start comparison immediately when opening a comparison file" checkbox).

  16. I should be able to designate a connection as 'Production' and define rules as to which statements are allowed/disallowed.

    Production will not allow any DELETE statements. UPDATE statements will need confirmation before they execute.

  18. In data comparison options, there is an option (Display Options) to show / hide Identical records before starting the actual comparison.

    My wish is to have another option to Display Identical Records only in the lower part of the results screen (where the data are shown) and not in the upper part (where the tables that are different are shown. In the upper part it's somewhat confusing to have the Identicals column while in the lower part is actually very useful.
