  2. It would be great if the results pane a consistent height rather than resizing to the take up all available space not used by the query. Sometimes you'll run a query that to get an idea of the type of data in a table but mean to expand on the query. With the current set up you have to resize the results window to write a multi line query after running the initial one line query.

    Please note that you can redirect the query result to the Data window:

    1. Select ‘Tools → Options…’. The ‘Options’ window opens.
    2. Navigate to the ‘Environment → Documents → SQL documents’ section.
    3. Select ‘Redirect data to Data window if Data view is closed’.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  9. It would be nice to have a tool which allows me to see all dependencies like a graph for a specific object. This helps me to identify all possible impacts; this would be a killer feature.

  13. I like to create visualizations of Data Warehouses using dbforge. In a Data Warehouse, foreign keys are typically not created physically.
    If I could create data base diagrams in dbforge, importing existing tables and creating virtual foreign keys it would be the perfect tool for DWH documentation.

  14. When entering parameter values on a stored procedure of the type of datetime or smalldatetime the datetime picker defaults to the current time, but might better default to midnight or allow the user to quickly change the time to midnight (such as a button click) as it is too laborious to change all of the times to midnight, which I'd guess may be the most common usage for stored procedure/function datetime/smalldatetime entries (dates without the time).

    1. The routed line that maps relationship of the table to the parent with a foreign key align the line drawn between them to the columns mapped, so that easy to visualize the exact FK column matching visually.

    2. That an additional display option allowed. Instead of just CONSTRAINTS alone, offer a Foreign Key option. This pane at the bottom wouldn't be the name of the foreign key, but instead the myid - references Accounts(Id) This would make the documentation easier to use.

  16. I would like to have my current SQL query be copied to the clipboard and formatted for pasting in the Visual Studio IDE. Example:

    Select * from MyTable

    would get copied into the clipboard as:
    String sSQL = "Select * from MyTable";

    Obviously larger statements are more complex.

  17. Add the ability to pan the schema using the mouse. Like we see on other product with the hand tool icon. It would be simpler then using the scroll bar or or mouse wheel with keyboard.

  19. When exporting SQL, many times I want to open it and run it or parts of it inside dbforge. For that reason, and because I am used to it from SSMS, I would like to export to new query window.
