  1. Support for high-DPI displays (dbForge Studios)

    dbForge Studio doesn't work well on my Surface Pro, which has a little over 200 dpi, and ships with a default setting of 150% magnification. At that magnification setting, many (but not all) of the labels/menus/titles in dbForge no longer fit in their container UI elements, and the resulting UI isn't very easy to use.

    I would like future versions of dbForge Studio user interface to scale well at the different magnification levels. While most Windows machines today don't have this issue (due to ~100dpi displays), it appears that going forward high DPI displays (> 200dpi) will be the norm.

  2. dbForge Studio for SQLite

    there're a few solid Database IDE/Administration Tools for SQLite in market. I love using dbForge Studio cause the development environment and work flow are so natural and boost my productivity to manage data, analyst data in advanced. Another feature that I love from dbForge Studio are data compare, schema compare, master-data view, and database snapshot & version control.

    Another tools that I review for DB Administration / IDE for SQLite is navicat. their have simplicity UI but leak advance feature in data compare, schema compare, version control and etc.

    There're many free and open source DB Administration for SQLite but…

  4. Add buttons for Database Diagram to hide or display foreign key and table names

    When placing tables onto a diagram, there are FK link names displayed by default that you need to always move away or delete one by one. And also display table names one by one. Would like to have the following buttons:
    - Hide all foreign key names on the diagram
    - Display all table names on the diagram

  5. dbForge Studio for FireBird/InterBase

    At least some MySQL users ought to be thinking of MySQL alternatives as Oracle will no longer have to maintain MySQL's dual licensing scheme in 2015. FireBIrd is free, mature, well supported and fast.

    Also, there are no 'real debuggers' for FireBird that actually run the scripts on the server the way DbForge debugger for MySQL works.

  8. Make object editors asynchronous

    This concerns, particularly, Table Editor.

    Do not lock the whole environment while extracting data from a table or changing a table's structure with Table Editor.

  10. Automatically add related table to Database Diagram (dbforge studios)

    (My team is looking to move away from Toad for SQL Server and so apologies if I keep referring to Toad!)

    In Toad (sorry!) when I drag a table to a database diagram, Toad will automatically pull in other tables that are related through a foreign key. This is tremendously helpful for learning about a family of tables, especially when introducing new users to our database. It is also powerful when considering schema changes, for example.

    Unfortunately, Toad's Database Diagram tool lacks just about every other feature that dbForge Studio has, especially the lovely auto-layout functionality. I would love to…

  14. Installation Process should handle licenses

    Hey
    I use multiple products from your Company (Entity Frame Work Pro, dotConnet for SQL Server, dotConnect for my SQL,...)
    Each time you upgrade your product, I have to run multiple installations and I always run in the error, that something is installed within the GAC, which I have to remove by Hand...
    It would be much nicer if you would provide one single Installation and what ever username/Password is entered, I can install/upgrade all products with one click (like DevExpress/Telerik and so on are doing it right now)

  15. Side by Side installation of dotConnect providers

    The dotConnect providers are awesome, except for one BIG issue.
    We have to maintain multiple versions over a long period causing issues when we need to upgrade to new dotConnect versions (oracle specifically). The reason is basically the fact that there is no option for side-by-side installation of different dotConnect versions.

    There are multiple ways to solve it. Like letting the version be part of the assembly name, or stop putting assemblies into gac at all.

    In any case, solving the side by side story would take away hours of troubleshooting related to new dotConnect versions that always comes down…

  16. Filter Groups on Database Explorer

    Be able to save a group of conditions (or filters) and then be able to switch over different groups with few clicks instead of type the all the conditions every time you want to switch filters

    Example:
    Group1: SP contains "user" + SP contains "insert"
    Group2: SP contains "admin" + SP contains "delete"
    Group3: SP contains "admin" or "user" + contains "delete" + contains "insert"

  19. use Code Compare in DB comparsion

    It's bizarre that you have this amazing file comparison tool, and you also heavily advertise your database comparison tools, but the comparison views in the DB compare don't use the file comparison code. There's no difference highlighting or smart merging, it's just "blah, here's the two files, you work it out". Sometimes I end up pasting the two blocks into FC so I can get that to point out the tiny difference in a wall of text.
