Saving "workspace" not just on a crash

One of the amazing “features” of Toad for SQL Server (and I think MySQL as well) is its remarkable ability to restore the entire workspace of tabs in the case of a crash, even ones that had not been previously saved into a .sql file. Even the tab positions are largely retained. The problem is that I’ve become so enamored of this ability that I tend to kill toad.exe outright than have to face saving a dozen tabs and then opening them back up one-by-one!

Is there a way formally save a Toad “workspace” – a la Firefox “sessions” – or even a short history of workspaces that I can choose to restore at a later time? This would be a massive interface improvement for me and my team.

Edit: Apologies for posting this on the beta thread. It really should be in the general discussion group, but I am ashamed to admit I didn’t realize I had to “join” the group in order to post. I thought I was just being silly not being able to find the “Post New Thread” button there!


Sorry for the late responce.

You can use this option - Tools | Options | Environment | Desktops | Open documents.

But.. Oops :frowning: , I figured out that this option doesn't work recently as expected. I've created several CRs to address all issues.

You will be able to check it in the future release.
