  1. When editing SQL text, would it be possible to change the default action of cut (CTRL-X), copy (CTRL-C) and paste (CTRL-V) to operate on the current line if no selection is visible? Every programming editor I've used do this as the default. An example use case: Cursor is in the middle of my current line and I want to delete the line. Current actions required are to press the HOME key (most times twice because the line is indented), hold down the SHIFT key and press the DOWN ARROW key, then press DELETE, or start typing with the new text.…

  4. Hi,

    I would like to suggest a new feature which will allow changing default export "options" for all exports to Excel/HTML format? I'm thinking about fonts, colors, alternating row colors etc.

    I don't like default coloring so I would like to change it for all exports I do from dbForge Studio. Now I have to change them every time, and it's tricky because I have to manually copy complex colors to dialog, select fonts.

    I was thinking that "Save template" would help me with this, but this saves whole data source too so I always get same data exported when…

  5. In SSMS / Visual Studio you can select a box section / columns from multiple lines for editing using the <Alt> key (EG: Select area on a single line, press <Alt> and down / up arrow and you'll have those same columns then selected in other rows too).

    This allows for quickly replacing / editing data that recurs across multiple consecutive lines - It's proved a HUGE time-saver.

    I believe this is what was asked for here:
    https://devart.uservoice.com/forums/177009-dbforge-studio-for-sql-server/suggestions/14157501-column-mode

    and it would be great to have that added into Studio.

  7. The software is great at restoring query tabs from the last session. It would be good to be able to save the current session's query tabs (and sql content) as a workspace. This would simplify working on multiple projects.

  9. On the database diagram, add ability to create virtual relationships between tables in different databases. This would help in documenting the implied relationships between databases.

    In version 6.0, the feature Execution Notification is added. It’s managed by the ‘Environment → Documents → Notifications’ section of the ‘Options’ window (select ‘Tools → Options…’ from the main menu).

    Will that be enough or should there also be an option to choose a file to play?

  12. Would you be able to change the 'Retrieve Data' context menu so that rather than doing a 'select * from table' it does a 'select top n from table' (where 'n' is a number I can configure).

    I like having the retrieve data menu, but I avoid using it because with some tables it can lock up the system due to it selecting all rows (which can be millions of rows).

  13. When a sql script is being edited and saved in same directory automated created *.design file. The *.design files in working directories is no good. I suggest to add ability set path for storing *.design files in separate directory. By default it can be temp directory.

  14. I've noticed that the dbForge MySQL Studio database connection properties includes "Use Security Protocols" and includes options for SSL/SSH connections, as well as public key authentication, whereas dbForge MSSQL Server Studio does not include such a feature... Would be very helpful.

  16. A cyclic automatic query refresh should be possible. I'm a developer and like from time to time to observe my data. An idea is to have some buttons to <refresh every second>, <refresh every five seconds> and <refresh every 30 seconds>.

  17. When you do multiple queries in a single SQL editor window, the results are tabbed down in the DATA window.
    If you whant to export all of them to a single file (ex: excel2007), you have to export every single of them.

    And also if you add the requested feature of exporting the executed SQL sentence would be ÜBER! :)

  18. 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.

  20. Filter Objects in databse explorer and then select contecxt menu item to generate the CREATE script.
    This would be much faster and easier to handle than the newly integrated Generate Script Wizard.
