Restore tabs on crash

Xenos posted 5 months ago in Feature discussion

Hi,

sometimes, HeidiSQL may be stuck or may end to crash. In such case, the unsaved tabs are lost.

It would be great to have a way to keep the tabs content, like Notepad++ does (it keeps the unsaved files on close or crash and restore them on reopening). That could be done by saving all tabs (on change or periodically) in temporary files, and restore them when opening HeidiSQL. When closing a tab, the temporary file would be removed.

Such a feature would be most welcome, since Windows 10 nowdays restarts the machine without thinking twice when installing updates.

I'd really like that too!

I totally agree: This is THE MOST WANTED FEATURE on my list!!!

Actually, the absense of this feature (combined with HeidiSQL`s tendency to crash on lost connections) is the only reason why I stopped using HeidiSQL for important work. I would immediately return to using HeidiSQL as soon as this feature is implemented, as then those crashes would not be such a problem anymore!
