As of the current design, tab pages tend to get cluttered when you have multiple query tabs opened and working with multiple tables will get harder. So I'd like to propose that (multiple) query tabs to be made per table, and placed under a main tab as sub query tabs, just like the table tab with multiple sub tabs in it.

What do you say?

That's exactly how it is currently, isn't it? Where's the difference?

That would be meaningful if query tabs were closely related to individual tables, but it's hardly ever the case. A query can retrieve data from zero, one or many tables. And, of course, a query tab can simply be cleared to type an entirely different query.

I agree that HeidiSQL could benefit from a slightly different tab layout, but not that one.

anse, nah.

Current design:
Host:<ip>
Database:<dbname>
Table:<table> subtabs: Basic, Options, Indexes, Foreign keys etc
Data
Query1
Query2
Query3
Query4


What I'm proposing:
Host:<ip>
Database:<dbname>
Table:<tablename> -> subtabs: Basic, Options, Indexes, Foreign keys etc
Data
Query:<tablename> -> subtabs: Query1, Query2, Query3, Query4

Actually, come to think of it, you're right about that. So disregard about the per table query tabs suggestion. But I'm still holding to my suggestion that query tabs should be tucked under a main tab to reduce tabs clutter

* tucked under its own main tab
