Connection bar switching connections when describe objects dialogue open.



I have two connections open, as well as the describe objects dialogue open in Toad. When i attempt to navigate to the other open connections sql editor by selecting that particular connection in the connection bar, Toad “flips” me back to the previous connection (seemingly tied to the describe objects dialogue). Instead I manually have to select the correct sql editor window via the Window menu. This behaviour seemingly goes away when I close the dialogue box. This is new behaviour in this version of Toad. In previous versions used to be able to just select the connection from the connection bar and it would take me to the last editor in that connection. How do I revert to former version’s behavior / functionality?


Hmmm, I’m not able to reproduce this effect with my Toad You might want to play around with the Describe Dialog options in Toad’s Options Base.

Get to Toad Options, select Describe Dialogs under the Schema Browser Page, and play with the Popped In/Out and grouping features. FYI, I have my Describes group-tabbed in a single Describe panel, undocked.
See screencap.



This should be fixed in the current beta.
