copy from sql-editor, formatted text in other applications.


Hi there

(This is from Alex)

If you insert copied text from the sql-editor out of the clipboard you had a formatted text in other applications.
In Version 6 this feature does not exist anymore.
It’s a pity, because this feature is very useful.



Could you please provide us with a usecase? The text is formatted using the Formatter or you’re talking about something else?


Yes indeed, this is a regression of functionality from 5.5. Code is pasted into clipboard as plain text, therefore the syntax highlighting is lost. We will address this in the near future (perhaps in 6.1, which is due in November).



Well, please do it.

Thank you!
