Yes, the main column. I should have made some more tests before opening this thread, because I finally figured out what is happening … but it took some time (and now I can spend time n it, my day is over).
For me autosize is not a good thing because I usually have explain plan much wider than toad window size and use scroll bar. That’s because I have around 10 columns, and some of them are very wide : as you said main column itself can be very wide if the query is complex because of indentation, and also filter predicates and access predicates. Just these 3 columns require sometime to be much wider than toad window size, and with toad 11 it’s not possible any more.
My 2 cents, after a 1 minute think time : there should be 2 modes
- disable autosize (like toad 10 and before, you set column width, it remembers it, that’s all),
- enable autosize, then the behavior should be
a) autosize (extend) main column width when total column width is smaller than editor window,
b) don’t autosize when the total width is greater than total length, let the user play with scroll bar.
It’s probably not a perfect solution, but at least, it could allow users to get witdh larger than editor window, something impossible right now (unless you manually resize each time again and again).
For the moment, this is the one feature that makes me think of downgrading to toad 10.
