Columns # (for fields) in Table: tab starts with 1. What about zero

Hello

What a simply wonderful, lightweight yet robust app- Thank you.

As a relatively new user, a quick question: As stated in the subject, the field number (in the first # column, left of Name) in the Table tab, for the first field is 1. When looking at a large number of fields in a table, the offset as accessed in programming constructs, usually starts with zero. Everyone I introduced to HeidiSQL.com loves it, but we all seem to have the same issue. Slight confusion when writing JSON/JS/PHP/SQL, looking at offset (which starts with zero) vs looking at the gui where the fields #s start with 1.

I searched the forum before posting, but was unable to find a reference to this particular "feature". Also looked at enhancements and feature requests.

Q1: Is there a "switch" somewhere to change this to start with zero? I looked, didn't seem to find it anywhere.

Q2: Is this even possible? And can I request this without a github login?

Thanks again for your great effort.

No there is no option to let it start at 0 I'm afraid. I didn't think of programming constructs while creatig that column list. That numeric column should just help the user. But why not make it an option in the context menu.

But why without gihub login? I already fixed some bugs just due to a forum thread, but feature requests should normally go to github.
