This is in the new 8.0 release. You just need to right click the tree > "Tree style options" > "Group by type".

In this version I can't see all the field using special char such as [ and ]
ex: Vout_[V]
Mysql permit the use of special char using '' to indicate the field...
Best regards

Thanks a lot!
Query history that's what I really missed!
kalvaro posted 6 years ago
I can confirm there're several issues if you have a column called "Vout_[V]":

The column doesn't appear:
- In the table editor
- In the "Data" tab
- In the right pane

Switching to the "CREATE code" tab in the table editor makes HeidiSQL crash.

I suppose the issue lies in the regular expression that extracts columns names.

[X] [ ] Table2
[X] [X] Table3
[X] [ ] Table4
