I'll offer several observations with respect to my thoughts on prospective "enhancements". The basis for which is having been a long time registered TOAD for Oracle user and TOAD for MySQL, even back when it was not free!
1. I have to say the recent interface changes in TOAD for MySQL are well...wanting. It seems to be an attempt to make it into a pseudo-java style interface. The whole glare and gradient styling just makes it more difficult to navigate the tool bars and the icon sets are either too small or too big. I can only speak for myself, but I would rather have the various TOAD interface designs consistent across platforms and versions. Sure, progress and all, but I'd rather consistency. I don't much care if the tools I use are styled in the current fashionable way, I want them consistent. At least give me to choice to have it so. One of the reasons I won't use SQLDeveloper except under duress is the hideous interface.
2. One of the wonderful long time features of the TOAD for Oracle has been the popup data editor in the grid. When you have long text columns it makes viewing and editing data much easier and as a result, safer. Bring it back (I am pretty certain it used to be there in the "old days". I don't mean that weenie drop down, fly-out editor either, but the full featured one like it used to be. 3. Add the option for a confirmation popup dialog when changes have been made to data in the grid.
"Show card view" is great !Best regardsGM
