Toad 12.8 - Replace button


#1

This is about the “Replace…” button in the menu. It has a drop down menu containing my saved replacement expressions. After installation of Toad for Oracle 12.8, I customized the menu, removing the “Edit” toolbar, and added the “Replace…” button to the “Standard” menu (I like to hide most menu items to have more place to the editor). But now, the drop down on the button is gone. Now, I have to click the “Replace…” button and click the “Load Replace Macro” in the “Replace” window. Is this a bug? It is very convenient to just select the replacement macro directly from the “Replace…” button…

I’m not following you 100%. There is no “Standard” toolbar in the Editor; however, if you mean the File menu or one of the others can you include a screenshot of what you see? Here I unchecked the “Edit” menu. I customized the Editor toolbar and dragged the “Replace…” command from the “Search/Replace” category to the “File” toolbar. My saved replace macro shows when I click the dropdown.

Thank you for replying. This is not the biggest problem in the world right now, but i like to cutstomize Toad to my needs :slight_smile: I.e. minimize the number of toolbars and buttons. Anyways, I think I see why this is happening. The dropdown menu on the replacement button appears only if the button is “in” the Edit menu. When I removed the edit menu, and added the replacement button to the standard menu, there’s no drop down menu. So this might be a bug?

replace_no_dropdown.png Here is how it looks - no drop down. The button is added to the “standard” menu. Yes - it’s called the “Standard” menu. Just right click on the top bar and see.

replace_dropdown.png Here is how it looks with the drop down when in the “Edit” menu (in another Toad - version 12.7)

As I said, I have removed the Edit menu, and now, it’s not possible to add it again - it’s not present when right-clicking on the toolbars. I don’t know why but the different menus can only be added certain places… Try to right-click on the different toolbars, and you should be able to see it. For example the “Edit” menu, can only be added in one of the two bottom toolbars…

Ok, I see what’s going on from your screenshots. They’re small, but there’s just enough of the adjacent buttons to tell that your first screenshot (12.8) you’ve customized the main Toad toolbar and dragged the “Replace…” button from the Search category to the right of the end connection button. The second screenshot (12.7) is showing the “Replace…” button from the Editor’s toolbar and it exists on its own toolbar to the right of the Desktop toolbar. This is going to sound a little confusing and I hope I explain it well enough, but the main Toad toolbars and Editor toolbars are different and in this case the “same” button behaves differently. Replace should probably show the macros even when it’s the main Toad button, but it does not. If you un-maximize your Editor you’ll more clearly see the separation between its toolbar and the main Toad toolbar. Now, rt-click and customize your Editor toolbar. Locate the “Replace…” button in the Search/Replace category and drag it to a new location. This new location will need to be in the Editor toolbar as you have in your 12.7 screenshot.

In this screenshot you can see the two Replace buttons. The one circled in blue is from the main Toad toolbar, the one in red from the Editor toolbar. Only the Editor replace button has the dropdown for your saved replacements. Customize your Editor toolbar and you can set it up like you have in 12.7.

Ok, thanks, I think I see :slight_smile:

But the funny thing now, is that the Editor toolbar is gone (somewhere), and I’m not able to add it again. The only available menus are:

The menus now look like:

I want to use only three “lines” (as above) for menus to have more place for the Editor.

Right-click in the Editor and choose “Customize Toolbars…” and you can add them back. You can also right-click over the main Toad toolbar and choose “Restore defaults.” You’ll probably need to restart Toad first if you choose the restore route. It’s not available on the first run of Toad and looking at your screenshot this may be the case.

I want to use only three “lines” (as above) for menus to have more place for the Editor.

You won’t be able to use only those lines and have Editor buttons placed on them. Those lines you show are for the main Toad toolbar which are context insensitive for the most part. Features pertaining to the Editor alone exist on the Editor toolbar so you’ll need to have at least one bar showing there if you want the replace button added as you’ve shown in your 12.7 screenshot.

Ok, I see. Thank a lot for you involvement! Also, I found that I can run the Replace Macros directly by right-clicking in the Editor :slight_smile: Then I’m happy!
