Storing tab contents

apocs's profile image apocs posted 1 month ago in Feature discussion Permalink

I often have several HeidiSQL's open and this bugs the auto-save of query tabs A LOT!

I wonder if it would be possible to store the tabs under a specific connection ID instead of the generic "/Backups"-folder?

So when I next time connect to sftp.example.com it would fetch the saved tabs from /Backups/sftp.example.com/*

I highly recommend to use one instance/window of HeidiSQL only, if tabs auto-storing is active.

Btw, you can open multiple connections in one window.

I'm aware that multiple connections are possible in one instance, but that would be too messy for me. Which is why I suggested this update, that would fix these issues :)

It would enable the use of multiple windows as your routine for looking for backup files only looks in a hostname folder :)

I could also just disable the auto-store feature :)

The idea to store tab contents in a folder named as a host does not work, as any HeidiSQL instance can have multiple hostnames open, anyway if you use that feature or not.

Yes, disabling the auto-store feature would be an alternative.

Then use a hash of the open connections :P
