click on the query output grid to select, then Control-C to copy

My idea for Toad for Oracle is that you be able to click on the query output grid to select, then Control-C to copy, like Toad Data Point, Teradata SQL Assistant, Oracle SQL Developer, and SQL Server Management Studio

Compare Health Checks Over Time

Retain the data for the database health check so that health checks can compared over time (not just current vs previous). This would allow me to see how my health check information has changed over a time period.

Import connections to connection list from csv

If you using a password tool like keypass, there is actual no option to import user/pasword/db-combinations to the connect list. A Feature allowing to import connections vom csv would simplify connection handling and password changes a lot.
