return closes export instead of actually exporting.

Hi,

I have a couple of usability requests for your excellent (and much used) sql client...

When I want to export a database I am constantly closing the window because I have to type in the file name and I instinctively press enter when I am done - this closes the window. This has the added frustration of then losing whatever filename I have entered.

I'd suggest that either the system automatically make a nice guess as to the export filename (e.g. desktop_dbname_datetime.sql) then I'd just click the export button. Or this dialog did nothing on pressing return.

Confirmed. The "Close" button is the default button on that form, so pressing enter clicks that button. I guess a good idea is to just have no default button at all, as pressing enter is mostly not meant to do anything in a complex dialog.

Done in r3829

Many thanks anse! Any idea when that will get into downloadable release? (I'd get the code, but VB is not my strong point)

VB??? This is Delphi Language, please :)

But yes, a release should come soon. However, you can get any interim build by updating to the latest build (Tools > Check for updates)
