There seems to be a new behavior with the Viewer option (vs. the 2.7 TDA). I’m not sure if its as-designed or a bug, but i feel the functionality is degraded from the prior rev. If as-designed, is there a way around it?
Currently: TDA will default to using a single Viewer window to view the details of DB objects. I may be inspecting the columns for Table A using the Viewer and then decide I want to View table B as well. As soon as I click on Table B in the object explorer, the Viewer tab will immediately display the details (columns) for Table B. I thought a reasonable work-around would be to right-mouse Table B and choose “View Details”…however, that also will just update the existing Viewer tab (it updates the tab immediately after right-mouse click, which I found a little odd as well).
Previously in 2.7, I could open multiple Viewer… windows for different objects. Clicking on a new object in the explorer would not replace the contents in any currently open Viewer tabs.
I feel this is a step backwards. It makes it harder to view object details for more than 1 object at a time. Is there a workaround? Or is this a bug?
