There's a Database filter beneath the list of databases which allows you to quickly pinpoint a database within a list.

However, there's no equivalent if you're trying to find a table within a database.

Maybe the filter could accept "database.table" or some similar functionality...

Hope this gets implemented!

You can select a database in the left tree and then switch to the "Database" tab, where all tables are listed. If the filter panel is not visible, you can go to "Edit-> Filter panel".

Hi Kalvaro,

I do think it would be much more intuitive to have the database filter accept tables as well. Instead of having effectively a two stage filter process (ie, 1) Find database 2) Find table - I'd like to instead 1) Find database.table)

This is then an interface improvement as opposed to a feature request. :)

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
Chris

This issue was marked as won't fix about a month ago. This is really unfortunate.

I don't know about others, but I never use the database filter. I don't have so many databases that I can't identfy the one I need at a glance. However, I have significantly more tables than databases and have to scroll to see them all. And many have very similar names.

I would use a table filter every single time I wanted to view a table. But a DB filter, I never use--it's kinda pointless.

How could this be marked as don't fix? It is one of the more important features.

I agree... :(

Maybe the HeidiSQL team should think outside the box a little...

At least a reason why you wouldn't implement it.
The program is great the only flaw is not being about to filter the tables.

another great feature would be a table bucket. sometimes im only working on 2 or 3 tables that are scattered about the database. i'd like to put those tables in a bucket so those are the only tables i see.

Again marked as accepted now. But I definitely need a nice idea. I have none.

I like the bucket idea, but perhaps should be discussed as a separate feature?
