  4. To show a 'many' relationship on the child side, a 'crow's foot' shape is used now. SSMS uses 1 and * (asterisk sign) to show one-to-many relation. So you can add similar notation to the Diagram Document Options. (Now there are two options available: IE and IDEF1X)

  8. I'd like a hotkey option to copy database diagram to my chosen default format, like PNG. I'm currently having 3-4 steps to simply save the diagram as a PNG. I'd also like the option to COPY TO CLIPBOARD AS: PNG, JPEG, ETC.

    One additional thought, attaching a comment to a table, not free floating. Kinda like a visio diagram. That would be nice for helping improve speed of documentation.

  9. Please implement selective export of certain records and all related records in child tables (by foreign key).
    Doing whole data compare in our case is estimated at 7.5hrs, which is too long for practical use.
    This feature would be very useful in our reproduce/troubleshoot workflows, replacing whole DB backup/restore, which is roughly 150GB, times 2, to be moved over network.

  12. Currently on the command line, the /sync option allows you to specify a file to write the sync script to, instead of executing immediately. When no file is specified, the sync is executed immediately. I would like a way to send the results of the sync operation to a log file of type .txt.

    I think it would be beneficial to have a couple of different logging levels:

    0 - verbose; each object start and stop time, warnings, and errors
    1 - warnings; only objects causing warnings or errors to occur
    2 - only errors

    Warnings should include the object…

  13. Do you plan adding user extensions for the IDE (plagins) or some other mechanism to extend the functionality with external utilities?

    For example:

    1. Using the external xml (you could include the editor), add an ability to add menu items (main, popup menu for a database, object, in the editor) where an external program with parameters will run (on a modal window) upon a click: current connection string (with a password, asking the user's permission), current database, current object type, current object name, etc.

    A return code will tell what to do ( -1 - error, 0 -nothing to do, 1-update…

  14. Frequently I have the need to comment or un-comment a section of my SQL code, e.g. a set of columns or a portion of a WHERE clause. It would be nice if I could select the block, right-mouse, and select comment/un-comment to place the "--" characters in front of the selected lines of code.

  15. In SQL it is possible, when adding a column with a default value to a table with existing data, to set the value of the column in the existing rows to the default value:

    ALTER TABLE {TABLENAME}
    ADD {COLUMNNAME} {TYPE} {NULL|NOT NULL}
    CONSTRAINT {CONSTRAINTNAME} DEFAULT {DEFAULTVALUE}
    [WITH VALUES]

    I would like to select this option when adding a column to the table in the designer, and also be able to include the option when scripting the changes to the table - when a schema comparison is done, have the WITH VALUES option included in the script.
