Minor Interface Requests


Firstly great tool - thanks. I've just got a couple of very minor UI suggestions that I've noticed.

Firstly, I deal with hundreds of tables and a database objects filter would be very useful for finding the one I'm looking for.

A way to copy-to-clipboard from the data view would also be great.

It would be nice to be able to quickly view the data (e.g. top 100 rows) of a database table without having to write a new sql query. Maybe a context menu on the database objects pane that loads a new data view with the table's data?

Lastly a trivial issue - the background images of the database objects panel (on right) still have the magenta background.

Hope you see the value in these suggestions

Thank you for your suggestions. Please note that the database objects filter is already implemented. Have a look at the Connection Properties dialog, click "More options" button and go to the Metadata Filter tab.

On the database objects filter - I'm sorry that I wasn't clear. I'm already using the Metadata filter in the connection properties and loading 100's of tables (out of thousands :-) ). I was referring to a small textbox at the top of the panel to quickly find tables in the list that have been loaded. I realise that this is probably a request that is only valuable in a minority of cases - but I guess that's your call.

i will second that, great tool, have tried various alternatives before opting to buy this and in general really happy.

copy feature
i would also vote for a copy feature from the dataview. it would save me a huge amount of time. would ideally allow single cell value and single/multiple rows. i so often have to export the data to excel to get even just one value to the clipboard. - which leads me on to thenext request

auto-open the exported file
on the export feature ( i am using the purchased version), can there be an option to automatically launch the file that is generated (would probably have to choose the default app for that file)
and/or can there be an option to display the file in an explorer window (the best example of this is firefox downloads 'open containing folder' where it opens an explorer window and has actually selected the file, so you are right to do whatever you want with it.

just gone to re-install 2.5.5 but it actually seems to have rolled onto 2.5.8. the website download link is still saying 2.5.5
Any chance of a update log on the changes
